Potholesome development

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/4715470.stm

The fact that there’s fine print to trap eager participants is shameful, in the context of the ‘contest’. If you’re posing such a challenge, you must be able able to say ‘show me *one* pothole in Bangalore and I’ll give you a 1000 bucks’ – or just shut up and work.

The positive from this is probably more citizen participation, ending of course in more citizen cynicism and despair, and hopefully more citizen anger.

This sucks.
