Some may wish to read the article by Mark Anderson in Wired [1] about
the recent PopTech conference in Camden, Maine [2].  Peter Diamandis
of X-Prize fame was floating ideas for the establishment of additional
X-prizes involving everything 200-mpg cars to $1000 genomes.  This is
on top of the recently announced Rocket Racing League [3].

Some of the other speakers apparently had other creative ideas as well.
