New Scientist Article

Posted by Danny Tarlow
MacGregor Campbell over at newscientist.com wrote a great article about our March Madness contest:

My only complaint is that Lee doesn't get the recognition for all of the hard work that he's put into making the contest happen. The contest literally would not have happened without him. (Thanks, Lee.) The other details are quite good, though. I'm particularly impressed by the clear and accurate description of the algorithms.

Thanks MacGregor! And thanks to all the participants who have entered the main bracket contest. If you didn't make it in time for the main contest entry, there's still the Sweet 16 contest. Get those algorithms running!

Thanks, Danny! But we also know that this contest wouldn't exist without you or this blog!
