Crowdsourcing the MacArthur Awards

,----[ Quote ]
| Since 1981 the MacArthur Foundation in Chicago has chosen 20 
| to 40 people each year to receive a $500,000 unrestricted 
| grant. This grant is given to people who "show exceptional 
| merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work." 
| On its face the MacArthur Awards appear to be a good idea. For 
| example, these awards shone an early spotlight on Richard 
| Stallman, who has made major contributions to the field of 
| computer science--doing so in a very selfless way.

Get out the Vote: 2009 Open Source CMS Award

,----[ Quote ]
| This award is often seen as a competition between open source CMS projects,
| however, I view the award as an opportunity to promote open source and
| content management to the masses. I also know many in the content management
| field that use these type of awards to help them decide which open source CMS
| projects should be on their radar too. While the winning open source projects
| do enjoy winning their share of the $24,000 in award money, I think the
| projects are more appreciative just knowing their users thought enough of
| their CMS to nominate them in the first place.
