Kickstart Doesn’t Start

TechCrunch announced Yahoo!’s Kickstart college student – alumni networking site, which went live tonight. No joy, here. First, the system could not find the University of Georgia (with or without the “the”). This is troublesome, since Yahoo! is offering a”$25,000 prize to whichever college/university gets the most alumni to sign up before December 31.”

The system found my MS alma mater, Virginia Tech, but would not let me save or move beyond that point. [Yes, I was already logged in with my created-after-Yahoo!-got-Flickr ID.] Screen shots follow (error messages detailed):
