Grand Challenge 2005
DARPA has officially announced that there will be a 2005 Grand Challenge [via Gavin and slashdot]. The prize has been doubled, and is now $2 million.
DARPA simultaneously announced that a “Participants' Conference” will be held on August 14, 2004 at the Anaheim Marriott, Anaheim, Calif. This informational conference is for participants, interested sponsors, and groups looking for others to help complete their teams. The conference will begin at 2 pm.
I have some photos of the 2004 contest.

I really want to enter this contest, win it big - like really kick everyone's asses, and then refuse to sell my technology to the military.
Sell it only to the Red Cross or maybe the UN.
Yeah, kick everyone's asses, then they give you the $2M and they're like "Woo, alright, let's get started on some military applications of this technology!" and you're like "dude, that disk I just gave you is BLANK. Oh, also, here's your $2M back."
