I'd like to thank all of you for your interest and support as we  
prepared for this competition. Now for the report...

Overall I'm disappointed with my performance. 20 minutes is just too  
short a time for building even a trivial application using GLASS. The  
analogy that comes to mind is this competition (race) was a sprint and  
we are much better suited to competing in a marathon. There was a  
point a  couple days ago when I told people that we'd do better if we  
got a beta copy of Cincom's Web Velocity from James Robertson and used  
it for the competition. I think they (Cincom) are doing an excellent  
job at aiming at this sort of audience.
