Context : AlternativesToCompanies (at least for creating software, design)

Hackathons

Wow! Those JotWiki guys are pretty cool.

: aside : Of course, I'm gonna start pronouncing this as "hackaton" in a slightly latino accent in honour of ReggaeTon (one of my favourite musical genres of the moment)

Competitions

A general competition. Offer a prize for the best or first or fastest example of something. (And by the way you keep some rights to it.)

Motivations

Challenges

Get a group together for the challenge of creating something quickly. Maybe goes back to TheGreatEggRace or beyond. For example a team of 6 people is challanged to build a machine to transport and egg, or map an island, or play the flute or piece of weblog software in a limited time with limited resources.
