howwwr writes "MadPenguin.org has a new article that suggests universities should involve students to expand the open source movement. Is it a good idea? "Where does this leave the efforts put forth by colleges to promote open source software created by students? Offering them cash awards is fine. After all, it's still promoting open source software. However, I believe that it's important to realize that offering those same students something a little bit less tangible may indeed give them a bigger boast of motivation in the long haul."
