Hmmmm - mentors get paid? This is the first time I heard of this. I
did it a couple of years ago and didn't get paid. I did get invited to
an "unconference" at google. It was kind of interesting to see the
google campus. And I was very impressed with the quality of free food
available seemingly on demand. I couldn't help but wonder if google
employees are overweight.

Also - I was under the impression that ideas for projects and proposals
came not from mentors but from applicants and that this was the basis
for accepting/rejecting proposals.

Just curious about this.
