in thread Want a million dollars?

Who's to say kwaping isn't one of the "motivated / smart" people you mention, and this is his/her effort to get together a small group of people to do just that. Maybe s/he doesn't have the right friends for the job, but is excellent at choosing good people and organising them?

I agree that less is more (that phrase could have been invented for talking about the size of programming teams) but there's nothing in the OP that mentions "getting as many people as possible to participate".

    The way that kwaping set about soliciting for contributions is evidence against his or her excellence at choosing and organizing people. Feel free to trawl kwaping's posts looking for evidence of great ability.

    Again, I'm not saying that my cynical response is correct. But it was my first response, and I presented it because I think it is useful for people to learn to be a little bit cynical in analyzing proposed opportunities.

    Update: grinder [pointed out that I said troll where I meant trawl. Fixed.
