The Federal Trade Commission has announced a $50,000 prize for anyone who can put an end to illegal robocalls. Most of the automated phone messages you get trying to sell you anything from health insurance to car wax are against the law, but they're routed through so many locations/countries before they get to you, locating the source and putting a stop to them has proven tricky.
So, in X-Prize fashion, the FTC has put the challenge out to the public. If you think you've got a workable solution, check out the details of the challenge, rules and expiration date here - http://robocall.challenge.gov
