Seems like a trend to me... maybe a school has 'suggested' that their students partake in this challenge. I love the one hour design challenge because is is open to all but I think that some may be being put off by these mass entries. Or is that just crazy talk?

An interesting topic though certainly and I look forward to finding an hour tomorrow to smash out some designs. :)

I just posted mine up. I tried hard to add some variety and not just design a better e-book.

Cameron, have you seen the Espresso Book Machine? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q946sfGLxm4 There are only a few in the world so far and one is near me in Boston at the Harvard book store. Its a really interesting device, but its still really heavy on the engineering and light on design ( it still looks a little like a prototype to me).

Wow, that's killer. I wanted to do something print-on-demand, but knew little about the subject and time was limited. I think this organizational model is really exciting and fun, and hope it will be implemented on a larger scale someday. I definitely want to flesh out my concept further. I wonder if they'd hire an intern/junior designer?

Guys, I am a lecturer of one university in south east asia, can I submit the entries of my students with their names on it? Most of them having difficulty accessing the internet and registration to the site?

Please advise.

Any word on when they announce the results? I'm curious what the guys at Portigal think of our concepts.

It was posted today to the blog. http://bit.ly/v0CDk

I won't be able to post the results here for a day or so.

Sorry, been swamped lately.

No worries, IP. We know you're busy and do this on the side just to give back. Thanks for your hard work!
