    The official Tournament by Facebook.
    Just type hackercup at the search box of Facebook

    Facebook is challenging software hotshots around the world to show their mettle in the online social networking king's first "Hackers Cup."

    The first place finisher is promised US$5,000 and will no doubt catch the eye of recruiters at Facebook.

    As Facebook explains:
    The Facebook Hacker Cup is an annual worldwide programming competition where hackers compete against each other for fame, fortune, glory and a shot at the coveted Hacker Cup.

    So for a company valued at $70 bln is giving out $5,000 to the first place winner. Are they expecting blowjoe with little or no experience in hacking to do it? It's not even worth the time of the popular group hackers.

    No one 's going to enter for the cash ;) Yet, ll those who make it in the top25 will be able to get any $200.000+/year job they want in their field. So, not a bad deal :)
