IBM’s XML Challenge: Search for the XML Superstar

IBM has a neat contest going on; there are five categories:Video, Gadget, Query, Porting and XML. It looks fairly straight forward. If anyone is interested in working together on either of the last two (the only team options), let me know!

See http://antoniocangiano.com/2008/12/01/ibms-xml-challenge-lots-of-prizes-inside/ for more information.
