IMO, we should not send someone any money before they demonstrated that they
are capable to do the work, working on things related to LIGO is certainly
qualifying the person to other similar science stuff but video coding is
quite different from searching for gravitiy waves though both surely are
pretty cool

so IMO he should either do some qualification task similar to what we
required for SOC or work on snow first and get payed after he showed some
usefull results
