Google's child-labor planOver 13 and got 240 hours to spare? Well, if you're good enough, Google's got $100 with your name on it. That's right, kids! It's time for The Google Highly Open Participation Contest. If that name's too long, just call it "Google Sweatshop"! Looking for more details?

All you have to do to earn your $0.24/hour wage, kiddies, is complete a few open-source projects such as the 10-man-day "Improve Performance or Reduce Memory Usage in the Mono Compiler" task. Easy as pie for smart cookies like you! Of course, remember, if it's not up to Google's standards, there's no reward for you. You may, however, spend 20 percent of your time dreaming of your mother's embrace.
