Hey Google, put up $1 million!

In this year's Pwn2Own hacking challenge, Google has put up $20,000 to the first person who can crack their Chrome browser at the CanSecWest security conference March 9-11. I'd be much more impressed if these fat cats put up $1 million. Because if they had enough confidence to put up $1 million, even if only for the first day's competition, you've gotta believe that the entire marketplace would switch to Chrome en masse. Don't get me wrong. I like the sandbox approach to security (a la SafeCentral). But when the heck is someone going to have the guts to behave like…well…Larry Ellison?

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
