Winner: RoM01

It's official: the first-ever River of Mnemosyne Challenge is complete. There are a lot of "firsts" involved in the challenge, including:
  • First-time entrants Tom, She Writes, Nessa, sarahjayne smythe, and Mumsy (brave souls, all).
  • Our first-ever 1st Place tie, which led to our first-ever use of our tie-breaking procedures (most 1st Place votes).
  • A new admin's failure to post even the First Muse.
Anyway, enough about us, here's the winner:



We have to apologize, however, in that the trophy banner is not quite ready (due to our graphic designer spending a week beating up cops... seriously... he was teaching police officers Aikido defense techniques). Rest assured, we will get the trophy out as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can read the winning entry at the following links:
Also, we've decided that the River of Mnemosyne Challenge was a success (relatively speaking, of course) and it will absolutely make a return in 2011.

In the meantime, get ready for our return to our regular schedule... check back March 1st for the next Muse!

Thanks to everyone who swam in the River of Mnemosyne!
