Yahoo! Grant

I received Yahoo! grant to investigate users’ motivational dynamics on voluntary contribution of geographic information online. This gift will cover my dissertation expenses for data collection, equipments and software, stationary, and upto three conference presentations. 

Yahoo! provided the grant in the form of gift; gifts are precious. But they also come with some unstated obligations to repay at some future time. Of course, Yahoo! does not expect me to repay it to them, but I feel obliged to repay by contributing to advance the science of volunteered geographic information (VGI). This has, in fact, inspired me a lot. Thanks Yahoo!
