A few of the typically more active teams took Day 17 off, which gave up-and-comer teams a chance to pop up on the daily leaderboard and gain ground in the overall standings. For example, EyeWirers is now lurking hungrily just off the overall leaderboard in 11th place.

With almost 20%, we now have enough data to get an initial sense about the research results. To avoid "experimental bias," though, we can't share those results with anyone - not even the researchers!
