For people interested in this sort of thing, there's also www.topcoder.com.  The competitions range in difficulty from hour long programming assignments with no monetary reward, to Marathon matches sponsored by organizations like Disney, NASA, and the NSA with top prizes that stretch well into the $10,000+ range.  There's also a ton of requested bug fixes that companies post that might take a few hours to figure out and fix that have $50-$100 rewards. 

Unfortunately, I can never seem to find time to get as involved with it as I'd like too so I can't really vouch for how easy/difficult it is to actually get any money from it, but it does seem like a cool idea.
