Peter Cooper, over at Ruby Inside put his money where his mouth was to generate some new resources for the Ruby world. He ran a contest with a $100 prize, asking people to post informative articles about Ruby or Rails to their blogs. Eighteen bloggers posted twenty-four new articles ranging from a review of the recent security problems in Rails to information about using Profiler__ and ruby-prof to static web generation.
I love this idea, and I think it generated some great information. I can't wait to see what happens the next time someone runs a contest like this.
