Those of you who were at the closing plenary (or listening remotely) may have 
noticed that Mauricio won the prize for best RIPEstat suggestion.  

The looking-glass idea is the one that the judges really liked.  It's one that 
provides some real-time information on resources, and aligns with the general 
goal of RIPEstat, to create a single portal for ops tools dealing with Internet 
resources.  And as one of the judges put it, "I wanted something similar when I 
admin'ed DNS servers" :)

Thanks to all who contributed ideas.  There was a lot of debate among the 
judges about which to put first.  And even though there was only one iPod, many 
more of the suggestions will get another prize (possibly better!) -- getting 
implemented in RIPEstat.

So please keep the suggestions coming, and speak up about what you think of the 
other suggestions so far!
