Yay, can't wait to see which teams will make it to the finals! :) Big congrats to all the teams that made it so far, it's a pity we only have 9 spots for the finals.

Thanks again for all your votes, and stay tuned for the important announcement on Friday!

Great to hear that, Saad. And we're really looking forward to receiving speaker proposals for the Summit; there is indeed a lot of talent here, and important topics to be discussed. So, don't forget to send your submissions in time! :)

Concerning voting system.
Not the greatest ideas win, but those which are "sponsored" by many friends, colleagues. In my opinion, these people even do not get close to the idea, understand what it is all about, just mechanically click the blue button. Quite unreliable system. Those 20% should be decreased at least by 10%. On other hand, it helped to attract more people to this project. But...
I hope judges will take this into account. Somehow it reminds me about Eurovision contest :)

Well, no public voting is perfect (not even elections) and that is why we also have a lot of different judges reviewing the solutions as well - unlike at the Eurovision contest :) We can assure you that the judges take the time to carefully evaluate all solutions, so I think that at the end the best solutions will make it to the finals. But at the same time I also think it's fair to give the public some influence over the results and see which solutions can get the most support.
