  OFFICE MEMO         Competition                           Date:  3/6/97

Here's a suggestion: why doesn't MathGroup or some other organization,
possibly with Wolfram Research's support, promote a yearly programming
competition that pits teams from around the country against each other in
real-time programming skills?   Microsoft has been supporting such an event
for C++ and Pascal for several years now with considerable success.
The event would surely help Mathematica to be known as a general programming
language.   Results of winners, including their programs could be posted on
the web to encourage greater numbers of submissions in subsequent years.
