Post By-prize?   Posted on: Sun Feb 20, 2005 4:41 pm
There has been much anger of much people about the information and PR policies of at least one team and it is sounding a little bit like this is going to be refreshed a little bit.

So what about a minor prize for informations and PR policies? Would that be possible? Could the XPRIZE Foundation find somone who would sponsor this by-prize? Should be worth 10,000 $ to 25,000 $ - not more.

What about it?

Very pithy :) and certainly true---Armadillo is far and away the best at keeping us informed. No one can fault them on not giving ENOUGH detail. :lol:

But I like it and enjoy reading their reports.

You are right - so what about a modification?

The by-prize shouldn't be given for the best policies but for the best progress of improvement of the policies - as an incentive.

What about it? What do those people here think who are posting angrily or have been doing so?

Now I have a hard time seeing the corporate incentive to provide such a prize. There needs to be something tangible produced. It's a lot easier to solicit donations for a prize that rewards what may be the result of improved communication policies (i.e., better flow of ideas = better investment and ultimately a better product is developed sooner) than some arbitrary prize for playing nicely. While improvement is desirable, it's producing that is important.
