My Deepest Thanks
...to everyone who entered my contest. I hope you can imagine how hard it was to pick 10 finalists!!! There were over 1000 works of art entered, and I sorted through the entries and started copying and pasting every one that I remembered as being cool to my "cut list" - which ballooned to over 100 entries before I went through and ruthlessly edited it down, pass after pass. Let me tell you truth: it hurts me that I simply can't afford to give everyone a big prize. When you're sorting through a pile of brilliantly creative work that obviously took a tremendous amount of people's time - it's hard to be ruthless. I'm serious; it's upsetting.
Now, it's my judges' problem to decide on the winners. Judges are:
Bill (computer security guru and researcher)
Ron (manager of IT security at a biotech company)
Rachel (university professor)
Dan (computer consultant and vocalist)
None of them are involved with DA and we can all trust them to be unbiased. I'm expecting the final results to be in by mid next week.
This contest wound up being much much bigger than I expected it to be, and your response was amazing. I'd hug you all, if I could,
thank you so very much,
