Cisco Contest Milepost on Journey to Open Innovation

,----[ Quote ]
| Bernhard Beckmann's Team BugsBernie from 
| Germany won US$20,000 for their 
| Integrated Surveillance System 
| application. Basically, their app turns 
| an IP phone into a silent 
| microphone/monitor that tracks noise 
| levels in the room. If their is too loud 
| a noise (based on a configurable decibel 
| level), a notification is sent where ever 
| you want: a security company, the actual 
| owner of the room, whomever. Oh, and try 
| to pull the cord out of the phone, and 
| the alarm goes off, too.


Cisco rewards bit twiddlers in router-to-server contest

,----[ Quote ]
| Cisco has announced the winners of a 
| contest, called Think Inside The Box, 
| that asked bit-twiddlers and server 
| tweakers to come up with interesting 
| server applications to run on the 
| routers.


The Social Desktop Winners

,----[ Quote ]
| After combining the community votes with 
| the votes from the jury we have 4 
| winners. We are especially trilled that 
| the winning submission of the contest, 
| the "ExtendedAboutDialog for KDE apps" is 
| not only fully implemented and working, 
| it already ships with Amarok 2.2! So you 
| probably already have it on your hard 
| drive...



Cisco becomes a major Linux server vendor overnight

,----[ Quote ]
| I wrote about Cisco's contest last June as Cisco's
| way of paying developers to stick a finger in the
| Microsoft eye with a $100,000 bounty for writing
| Linux-based applications for its AXP (Application
| Extension Platform).
| I clearly underestimated Cisco's ambitions.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
