Some editors questionned the fact we could be within the requirements of
eligibility due to the mention of "multimedia" work.
This is a relevant comment.
However, I would like to insist that Jimbo was contacted directly by the
organiser of the challenge, and that there should not be problems of
eligibility, as we were *specifically invited* to submit.
Anthere a écrit:
We have been contacted by the assistant to the
of Pirelli INTERNETional Award.
Website : http://www.pirelliaward.com
The Pirelli INTERNETional Award call for contributions
to the diffusion of scientific and technological
culture, with an overall budget prize of 135,000 Euros
(about US$ 170,000), plus 25,000 Euros for this year's
Pirelli Relativity Challenge, a special prize for the
centenary of the publication of the Special Relativity
Submissions to the Pirelli INTERNETional Award must
1. a multimedia work
2. for the spread of scientific and technological
3. of maximum 150 Megabytes in size
4. in the English and Italian language
Applications should be done online
submited via FTP by December 31st, 2004.
I made a page on meta :
Please, note that there are already articles in
english AND italian.
I think work is needed to get the best of the two
versions to make one common great article. And if
possible (in particular if WE WIN the award) to have
this article translated in many languages.
Of course, editors of all languages are welcome to
work on this challenge.
Berto, from it, has agreed to work on this, and help
provide a common best article.
Danny is also very excited by the idea, and will
coordinate the submission.
There is an issue on how it should be presented.
I also think this is a great opportunity for two
languages to cooperate, so I hope we can do this well
and in peace.
What do you all think ?
