This is a recursive proposal. Project Proposal: I will distribute 100 1¢ grants during the first month of 2009. 1¢ grant recipients must agree to complete their projects within a month, and will be asked to provide their name and a project title. Documentation of these grants will take the form of a list, noting every recipient's name, project title, as well as the year and mint of the 1¢ coin given to them. Thank You!

Jason is currently distributing 1/100th of cent as time (assuming his time is worth $15/hour, that's 24 milliseconds per person).
Name: Paolo Pedercini Project title: World Peace Money delivery: keep the grant money until you find a wishing well then make the wish: "I want World Peace" and drop the penny.
send me the penny in an envelope and i can make a paper boat out of it and float it down the charles with the penny in it
i took a video of actually throwing the boat into the waterfall, but i'm having trouble getting picasa to upload it, and it's an epic fail anyway, since there was lots of wind and the boat just flopped to one side in the water.
I promise I won't use it to buy drugs for the month anyway.After receiving the penny:
My parents thought it was some kind of mafia thing.
distribute the superstitious quality of luck to one self selected individual who chooses to stop and pick up a face up penny
Effort: A Cost Analysis Rebecca Weisman Are pennies really worth anything anymore? Are they worth the effort of being carried around? My one cent will be used in an experiment to determine the percentage of people in a given population who are just too damn lazy to pick up a penny off the ground. I will place my penny in a heavily trafficked area on the ground and sit at a distance documenting via video how long it takes for that penny to be picked up. A slightly more creative variation of this project would be to attach the penny to a piece of paper and hang it on a community bulletin board or in a lost and found area and see how long it takes to be retrieved.
