Bounty for the best solution
Provide a bounty for the best solution
Bounties attract serious brainpower to the challenge.
- Provide families with a sense of closure
- Aid in search and rescue by sorting out between the missing and dead and helping to find both.
- If used successfully it could serve as a template for future emergencies due to hurricanes or tsunamis.
- It's easy to imagine the frustration one must feel trudging for hours through water but being unable to find anyone.
