Nobody wins -- or even finishes -- Grand Challenge

Why is this funny? Because after everything that's been written about it, the Grand Challenge was pretty much a bust. Mike Elgan was out there and said since nobody finished they'll probably run the race again in 2006.

So how far did the best team go? 7.4 miles -- out of 142. So about 5% of the way -- maybe next time they'll make it to 10%.

I would have loved to see them succeed in this. Considering some of the brains behind this, you would've thought that somebody would have made it more than 7 miles. Most of the entries didn't even make it to a mile.

However, Mike still feels it was a grand success, and he provides great evidence as to why it was a great success.
