Last year Google acquired Slide, a company best known for its 3rd-party Facebook apps and photo sharing software. It was also founded by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin. Now it seems Slide is reappearing in a different guise running the new website Prizes.org.
The idea behind Prizes.org is a simple one: let anyone create a contest for a problem they need solving. In return for the help of the community you offer a prize/reward for solving that problem. So, for example, maybe you have a logo that needs designing, are stuck for what to say at a speech you have to give, or simply want some help writing a resume. Through Prizes.org you can get that help and the winner of your contest earns some cash as a reward for their expertise.
