DC Notes Exchange


DEFCON Notes Exchange exists so con attendees can swap and compare notes on talks in a central area. Drink too much the night before and miss a talk? Debating between two different speeches on two separate tracks? Check the notes exchange to see what other folks had to say about the talk you missed.

Rubicon Defaced?

Food for thought.

Bang-For-The-Buck Results

This table presents the various entries in order of our bang-for-the-buck metric. Bang-for-the-buck is a derived statistic, calculated by dividing the overall score by the cost per pound (in US dollars). Entries for which no price data was submitted are excluded, of course. In the event of a tie, the raw overall score was used as a tiebreaker.

Truly, this is interesting data. First, the overall winner was also the lowest score, in terms of bang-for-the-buck. This just goes to show you that you get what you pay for, but there may be a point of diminishing returns. Similarly, the second place entry overall was also the highest bang-for-the-buck. This just goes to show you that excellent coffee does not have to cost an arm and a leg. Sometimes just an arm is sufficient. Or a leg. Whichever you'd miss less.

Miscellaneous Other Results
In other categories, the winners are as follows.

There's a moral here, too: the winning entry was the winner overall, in all categories. There wasn't just one score that tipped the scales. Some have hypothesized that the reason that entry received such off-the-scale marks was just that it was the last entry to be sampled, and the judges were simply going crazy with the emotional release of finally finishing their hard work. Perhaps, to some small degree, this is true, but I think not greatly. This was some outstanding coffee, and it richly deserved to win.

OK. That's it for the results summary. All the data is available for download from the Coffeewars.org site, in case you want to do your own calculations.
