I think it’s _totally_ awesome that a non-Manila team won the contest.
=D Take that, everyone who thinks only of the big three schools! I
think it’s absolutely fantastic! Looking at
http://www.msuiit.edu.ph/scs/ , I’m also very much impressed by the
fact that two of their students are among the 20 grand prize winners
of the 2004 IBM Linux Scholars Challenge. Neaaaato.

(And I’m surprised not to find any teams from Ateneo in the finals.
Either we didn’t try, or we didn’t do well. Weird!)
