The finalists have been chosen!

For this years JavaOne T-Shirt Hurling Contest, the three finalist teams are led by Rob Butler, Roberto Diaz and Bruno Souza. Judging was remarkably hard this time around because there were so many good ones. Some were pretty edgy. Some, a little too edgy... I really wanted the entry from La Jolla High School to be a finalist, but they were a little to far on the other side of the "don't freak out the fire marshal" line: I would have loved to see their mixture of sodium pellets, O2 and a toilet.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to the fun at JavaOne! It'l be hard for the first two teams to match the Brazilians craziness, but I'm sure they'll do a good job of fighting back with some outrageous engineering.
