  Google seems to be biased towards people they've worked with in the
past (i.e. they admitted that much last year.)  They also like "sexy"
projects that get them lots of publicity.

  What projects can we propose that Google might get excited over?
RADIUS is a small space with little visibity, so that's a strike against
us.  At the same time, they've funded tiny projects with next to no
users, but see above for why.
