When I was working for Wired, we coined the term jitteratti (what the digerati become after too many cups of coffee). Caffeine and tech journalism (all journalism, for that matter) seem to go hand-in-hand. So it’s sort of fitting that Wired is doing a Starbucks art contest. The idea is to make something cool and interesting exclusively out of Starbucks junk (cups, stirrers, drink holders, etc). Tape, glue, and string are allowed. There doesn’t appear to be any prize for the winner, except coverage on the site. C’mon Wired, pony up something decent.

To inspire you, Wired posted this incredible TIE Fighter, made by Wired photographer Dan Winters.
