Once upon a time, FSF, Mozilla, and OpenGameArt and Creative Commons,
actually raised funds for a two-part project: Liberated Pixel Cup.
I thought the discourse and organization around it was quite nice. Perhaps
an annual event of the sort would be quite motivating for aspiring coders,
and some not so aspiring, especially with cash prizes and shared assets,
just a humble opinion.
