Prize Philanthropy

The blog Tactical Philanthropy has 2 posts on using prizes in philanthropy to increase innovation and to simulate market forces in problem domains where these forces don't necessarily come naturally. The posts are here and here. Although the blog is not space-centric or prize-centric, there is a lot there in the posts and comments about space prizes like those run by the X PRIZE Foundation and Bigelow Aerospace.
