Alfred "Tuna" Snider wins the race among those at the final to post a video of the debate online.  I know the team at idebate are also working on copies of the final plus the ESL and EFL finals and I'll post details of these once available.

While we wait for the announcment of the finalists Mite Kuzevski and the team at idebate have uploaded the videos from the semis. They have broadcast throughout the tournament and have provided a super service. Well done guys.

The announcement of results has begun so hopefully it won't be long until we know the winners.

But then again in Cork this process took over an hour as they killed time waiting for the judges to come back so you never know.....

Update: Apparently they announced they are ready to reveal the results so they sent on another musical act to build tension.

So that's more or less it from Botswana for 2011 (yes I know other than tabs, videos of the finals and stuff but we'll get there in due course).

Next year it's De La Salle University in Manila.
