The README I wrote for our ICFP 2008 contest submission was quoted in the awards presentation slides at the conference last month. Cool!

(Also, the final results have been announced. The winning team was Team Smartass, as per usual; The Lone TeXnician won the judges' prize and was declared an "extremely cool hacker".)

I think Team Smartass is intentionally subverting the Functional aspect of the contest. Java! and we thought C++ was embarrassing.

"The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal."

Maybe the contest organizers make Team Smartass use Java or C++ so that other teams have at least a fighting chance.
