Janni Black (comment #19) wins one of the full passes, for this suggestion:
"I'd bid to send three web celebrities on a week long trip to visit AIDS orphanges in Malawi, Africa, with the condition that they would write web articles about these two things upon their return.
A. Their experiences with the children and orphange operators while there.
B. Their ideas on how "Web 2.0" can make a huge impact on really, really big problems like this."
The second full pass goes to Andraz Tori of Zemanta (comment #11):
"I'd bid for very first versions of business plans of MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo, Google, Wordpress, Skype, eBay, ...
Comparing them with where they are now would be a fun and very very interesting reading!"
And for the consolation prize, we liked this suggestion by Alex Capece:
"A Metallica CD signed by Shawn Fanning." (comment #37)
