CrazyLeaf Design Rating : 9/10
Colin Smith, founder of PhotoshopCAFE.com, one of the best known web sites dedicated to Photoshop, has announced the site’s seventh annual design contest, which, as with previous iterations, has a theme specifically related to Photoshop itself. Last year, for example, the challenge was to design the front of a cereal box, which resulted in such winning entries as Linked Layers: Fortified With Styles; Crusty Tools; and HistoGrams: Begin Your Day With Balance.
This year’s theme is a billboard dedicated to Photoshop, set in the past or in the future. In Colin’s words, “Past and Future means that it can be yesterday or tomorrow, but leaves it open to cool period pieces, and crafty wording and usage of imagery.” The prizes raise up to 12000$. Entries must be posted before March 1, 2007.

Florence Devouard, chairwoman of the Wikimedia Foundation, has touched off a tempest with her suggestion in a talk at the Lift07 conference that Wikipedia has funding for only another quarter and “might disappear” if donations don’t pick up.
According to this post by media producer Philippe Mottaz, Devouard told the audience: “At this point, Wikipedia has the financial resources to run its servers for about 3 to 4 months. If we do not find additional funding, it is not impossible that Wikipedia might disappear.”
Here is a copy of the official Wikimedia budget for the last quarter of the 2005 calendar year. Keep in mind that although this copy dates from 2005, the costs of running Wikipedia have rised in time.
