It was a nice contest this year and I'm happy/surprised that I wasn't the only one who enjoyed Trisa's video.

Oh the pointing sheets got published? I must have overseen it. Oh well! Makes it more fun and people get some more comments about their work. Next time I'll just spend more time on the comments so you get better feedback from me.

My favourite video of the show was Satoshi Con vid by Fullmoon88. I look forward to the release!
