MIT + Social Media + Red Balloons

The DARPA network challenge begins tomorrow: They will place 10 red balloons throughout the country, and the first team to find them all wins $40,000.

The MIT team is operating through a social-network experiment: if you find a balloon for the team, you get some money. Whoever recruited you to the team gets half that amount, and whoever recruited them gets half of that again. So on and so forth.

So sign up as my recruit, recruit people yourself, and win money from DARPA.
