+ - OpenWRT $200K cash open source router GUI contest-> 1

RoundSparrow writes "$160,000 first prize, 4x $10,000 for the runner-up prizes. The rules seem really favorable to the OpenWRT project: all entries are required to have open source license and will be released. Contest already started, but I have seen almost no mention. There is still plenty of time left.

Could be built on top of existing X-WRT or LuCI OpenWRT web interfaces. OpenWRT Kamikaze 8.09 was just released. Now is perfect timing for OpenWRT to get some kick-ass interface and usability ideas. I'm not affiliated with the contest vendor."
