Google Highly Open Participation Contest (just call me GHOP)

Following on from the success of the Google Summer of Code program, Google is pleased to announce this new effort to get young people involved in free software development.

If you’re a student age 13 or older who has not yet begun university studies, we’d love to see you help out these projects. In return, you’ll learn more about all aspects of developing software – not just programming – and you’ll be eligible to win cash prizes and the all important t-shirt! You will, of course, need your parent or guardian’s permission to participate where applicable.

    Is this another one of “Matt’s Amazing Jokes” or is it actually true?
    Link?
    If it’s true i’d probably be interested.

    Most evidence to support my hypothesis it will take a generation for us to stop asking questions of people that are better answered by asking a computer.
