This seems a natural fit for us, we have a crash-tested ultra-light weight chassis in the SGT01.  Please forward this post to interested parties, and email info@WIKISPEED.com with your capacity of how many hours per week between now and March 5th you can commit to put in.  From this list we will form a team.  I’ll start by saying I can commit 8 hours per week to this exclusively, with up to 40 hours potentially on some weeks.  I will contribute directly and serve as a Scrum Coach to the team.  If you wanted direct experience pairing with me on a Scrum Team, this is an opportunity for that.

Any winnings will be deposited into WIKISPEED’s Non-Profit account with the explicit purpose of purchasing turn-key engines for our customers.  Significant contributors will be written up in a press release distributed to global media outlets, featured in a white paper of our findings if time allows, and invited to present on the topic during at least one of the world’s major manufacturing technology conferences.  -Joe
