CoffeeWars 4: Main Index
This page is a summary of the official results for CoffeeWars 4, held
in the morning of August 1, 2003 at DefCon 11 in Las Vegas. There's a
lot of information here, because we were much better organized than
ever before. Here is a fascinating index of CoffeeWars 4 materials
that you will probably want to read in tremendous detail:
- Story: The
whole CoffeeWars 4 story, from start to finish, full
of detail and good cheer.
- Results: A
discussion of the entries, the comments of the
judges and some analysis of the scores.
- Forms: The
official judging and entry forms, suitable for
framing. Also, the ASCII art of the vinyl banner
that we hung on our table: be the hippest kid on
your block by making one of your own!
- Lessons Learned:
Although the CoffeeWar was a stunning success, there
are things that could have gone better, and it is
important that we write them down, so we don't forget.
- Credits and Thanks:
Thanks to all who participated, and sorry to all those who
couldn't; hope I didn't miss anybody.
- Multimedia: Photos
and anything else.
- Technical: The raw scoring
data, so you can do your own statistical analysis. It's
in Excel format. Sorry about that, but I am lazy, and
this is the tool at hand at the moment. Judges are named,
because at CoffeWars, we believe in accountability!
- Announcement: The official
announcement of CoffeeWars 4, calling all coffee enthusiasts
- Speech: The text
of the speech read by Foofus at the awards ceremony.
We had a tremendous amount of fun with CoffeeWars 4, and we hope
everyone else did, too. We're looking forward to the fifth installment
with giddy anticipation. With so much coffee, that's the only kind of
anticipation we've got.
NOTE: At some places throughout this site, you'll see reference to
a mysterious character by the name of Abby Normal. This person is
unrelated to AbbyNrml of moloch.org, who is also a very nice person, but
who-- so far as I know-- had nothing to do with CoffeeWars.
