    This is very interesting, but I couldn’t get a look at any of the ideas without registering, and as a Grown-up (ha, ha) I am not eligible anyway. I wonder why they wouldn’t throw this open to a wider audience?

    This is a great way to bring new ideas and innovation to the corporate arena, which after a while can certainly get stale. And a $50,000 reward for an idea that can be worth 100 times that if pulled off successfully certainly isn’t a bad incentive.
    Great post, keep up the good work.
