Late last week, chef Ferran Adrià and others behind the digital culinary archive project Bullipedia announced the winners of Hacking Bullipedia. The contest was organized to gather ideas to apply to the website, including "search­ing, col­lect­ing, orga­niz­ing, index­ing, clas­si­fy­ing, orga­niz­ing, rep­re­sent­ing, pre­sent­ing and visu­al­iz­ing infor­ma­tion, and knowl­edge from the inter­net." A team including Adrià, representatives from Bullipedia partner Tele­fónica, and "top tech­nol­o­gists, inno­va­tors, and chefs" ended up awarding two teams: Huevo, which uses cooking as a programming language, and Genesis, an intelligent navigation system. According to Wired UK, "30 teams made up of around 120 people from 14 countries and three continents submitted proposals." The program was so successful Adrià and company intend to hold another Hacking contest to further generate ideas for Bullipedia.
