It’s nice to see big companies giving back in interesting ways. In honor of the 25th anniversary of “.com”, VeriSign has created this grant program with a $75K award. An impressive list of judges, including Vint Cerf and Michael Chertoff, will evaluate the submissions. The program was designed to “foster new research, advance security and stability and improve Internet infrastructure for the next 25 years.”
Unfortunately, only academics and non-profits are being targeted – limiting the ability of for-profit tech startups to benefit in any way.
