Melissa HanhamOpen Source Pub Quiz

I just got back from London, where Nick Gillard and I tried to stump the very smart participants of RUSI‘s UK PONI conference with a pub quiz. Despite a few technical glitches and a few fire alarms, it came down to the sudden death tie-breaker question. Many thanks to Andrea Berger and the whole RUSI team for indulging our madness with iPads and pub food for the teams!

See if you can do it too! Remember they only had wifi enabled iPads, and these questions were projected on a screen. The winning team enjoyed a 50£ tab at a local pub thanks to Nick! I can only give you ACW fame… Enjoy!

    I always thought pub quizzes were a stupid idea until I saw this one.
