Google Open Source Peer Bonus winner

I am pleased to announce that I am one of the 2017 "Google Open Source Peer Bonus winners" for my work on pcsc-lite and the CCID driver.

The latest round of Google Open Source Peer Bonus winners

Monday, March 27, 2017
Google relies on open source software throughout our systems, much of it written by non-Googlers. We’re always looking for ways to say “thank you!” so 5 years ago we started asking Googlers to nominate open source contributors outside of the company who have made significant contributions to codebases we use or think are important. We’ve recognized more than 500 developers from 30+ countries who have contributed their time and talent to over 400 open source projects since the program’s inception in 2011. Today we are pleased to announce the latest round of awardees, 52 individuals we’d like to recognize for their dedication to open source communities. The following is a list of everyone who gave us permission to thank them publicly:

The bonus (I should receive) is a credit card with 250$.

That is not much compared to Google annual profit. Google operating profit for 2016 was 30 419 M$.
My bonus part is 250 / 30 419 000 000 = 0.000 000 008 218 548.

That is not much for Google, but this is twice the amount I received in bitcoin for now ("How to help my projects? Send me bitcoins!").
