I took a quick tour of the floor of the exhibition hall of all winning projects, where last year's winners were explaining their projects a year after receiving funding. Many looked very cool, and seemed to have accomplised alot since last year. I hope that some or all of the projects go on to have a dramatic impact on the world and help make the world more just and more equitable.
