LarsWestergren (9033) writes "Sun has announced the OpenJDK Community Innovators' Challenge. You can submit a proposal of your idea, using up to 3000 words. Examples given are "an idea for a new Java API or tool for the JDK, porting the OpenJDK code base to new hardware or a new operating system, or helping to further the educational use of the code base through curricula and courseware". You should be able to implement your idea yourself or with a team of up to 10 people. Seven proposals will be selected, and the submitters will have until August to implement them, with a chance to win up to $175,000 in awards."
