Some projects (Ubuntu, MySQL) and dozens of others participating in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) are leveraging this model to build successful and thriving open source projects. However, it's not the money that's attracting participation. Instead, it's the opportunity to learn from the best, get recognition and make a difference. Bazaar, Git and Mercurial are steps in the right direction, but we need better tools to enable the open source master-apprentice model: shared roadmaps, wishlists, discussions, and tools for mentors and masters to collaborate."

Quote from manufacturer website: "BioMask Medical Face Mask — "BioFriend(TM) traps microbes by mimicking the sites on human cells to which they normally attach, then, destroys them by disrupting their surfaces (viruses) or cell walls (bacteria). Kills germs including those that cause Influenza A , Bird Flu, common colds, measles, MRSA, pneumonia, SARS and tuberculosis."
Some other background chat.
I dont have any connection to this firm, I was looking for a facemask as I am on a flight on Thursday and didnt want to die at a London airport or on a orange budget airline. Rather annoyingly it doesnt seem to available in the UK. As in my handle, there does, at first glance, seem to be a cheeky wee business op for a distributor of this device in different market sectors."
