The daemonites have recently rebuilt the entire Eureka Science Prizes website for The Australian Museum. The web application was rebuilt from the ground up, leveraging the existing design, and tussling with the migration of existing data. We're seeing a fair bit of traffic now that the People's Choice Awards have opened up, and the site is getting regular exposure on the ABC.
"The People’s Choice Award goes to the scientist who receives the most online votes from the Australian Public. The finalists are those who, from all the entries received in the Eureka research prizes in 2007, best captured the imagination of staff of the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes Unit", Vote People's Choice!
