50K Euro Compression Prize

Marcus Hutter has announced that a 50K purse will go to the developer of an algorithm which can compress the first 100MB of Wikipedia better than its predecessors:
Being able to compress well is closely related to intelligence as explained below. While intelligence is a slippery concept, file sizes are hard numbers. Wikipedia is an extensive snapshot of Human Knowledge. If you can compress the first 100MB of Wikipedia better than your predecessors, you(r compressor) likely has to be smart(er). The intention of this prize is to encourage development of intelligent compressors/programs.
If anyone wins the prize using Cypher's impeccable pattern-matching capabilities, we'll humbly accept your gratitude :)
