A few bangs on our own drum

It's hard to write about this without sounding as if we're bragging. Mostly because we are. We cannot help feeling proud as peacocks when our students, former or current, do well in competitions.

This time it's Rasmus Wängelin, Johan Törnkvist, Anton Robsarve and Hampus Hansson from Crew 11, aka Team Torsk, who won the 2008 Webdesign International Festival.

More than 260 teams from all over the world entered. 40 of them qualified to the finals. These top of the crop teams gathered in Limousine (the region in France, not the car) and had 24 hours to create a prototype of what a communication site could look like 2008. Team Torsk's prototype was chosen as the winner.

Congratulations to Hampus, Anton, Johan and Rasmus!

By the way, did you know that the car type "limousine" got it's name from the long cloaks worn by the shepherds from the region Limousine? No? If you ever happen to win "Jeopardy" or "Who wants to be a millionaire?" with this knowledge, feel free to send a complimentary gift to us here at Hyper Island.

More reading (about the competition, not limousines in any form) in Swedish newspaper Resumé and on Swedish blog Reklamfeber

@beakid: I knew that! I did. Promise. I blame the late hour, and the Limousine-confusion for any errors. Thanks for the correction :-)
