I find they way they did it rather disappointing. This proves more the power of money over the power of social networks. This approach would take a large amount of money if the data size is big, and in real world situation there is no official answer, so they can never be sure whether they have it right. I can imagine a large group of coordinated people spamming a common answer, posing it as the correct one, and fetch away all the prize money.
The CNN article says: "We're giving $2,000 per balloon to the first person to send us the correct coordinates, but that's not all ..."
I think "offering US$2,000 to anyone who gave them the coordinates of a balloon." in this wikinews article is not collect. Because they didn't gave "anyone" but just " the first person". I'm afraid that I'm not so acquainted with English sentences,but I felt something look odd. How do you think?--220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:17, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
