I am teaching a computer software development course. So far the students are working on a web server development project with some very advanced features. While on a research trip to the US last week, I managed to swing a deal with a major ISP to purchase all of the working assignments from those students who are willing, for a whopping $440,000 USD plus royalties. The exact revenue to be returned per person is hard to predict since our university will probably keep about 95% according to their IP policy, but that should still leave an interesting revenue per person.

The students need to vote on the proposal, get a 85% majority, and provide their source code. Then a team of team get to accompany me to Orlando at their own expense to provide the needed deployment team get get everything running and integrated into the ISP's web site. The amazing part is that the deployment team gets a bonus of 200 pounds of coffee beans and deodorant to allow them to get the job done on a very accelerated schedule.

The whole package was finalized today, April 1st.
