the winning pitch was DonutDivorce.com (see video clip above), a collaborative website for enabling breakups. logo and tagline are pictured here, along with the 4 other Half-Baked groups:
This is the 3rd time we've done Half-Baked; i ran the first Half-Baked at foo camp 06 with Paul Rademacher & James Levine, judged by David Hornik & Paul Graham. Amit Gupta ran the 2nd Half-Baked at BarCampNYC2.
This time we added the twist that the group that picked a name first got to pitch last, and vice versa. This made the name selection move along quite quickly, altho interestingly the group that chose last & pitched first was the winning pitch. (thus proving that first-mover advantage doesn't always win).
this time everything moved very quickly; we ran the entire session in under 45 minutes and everyone seemed to appreciate the rushed frenzy. (i hope this becomes a regular event at future unconferences -- i'm certainly getting addicted ;)
