The xkcd Bracket

I trust you are a regular reader of xkcd, and if so, I imagine you saw the comic from this past Monday. I looked at it and said, “So now someone needs to set up some kind of voting system.” And then I said, “Well, it would be easy enough to get something going with a simple Google form… and each day’s matchup, and then the results, can be posted on a Twitter account…” And before you knew it, I had launched myself into this entirely frivolous project. Yesterday, Neil Armstrong kicked Louis Armstrong’s butt. (I would have gone the other way, personally, but I guess I’m not surprised given xkcd’s science-y readership.) Today, Lance Armstrong and Stretch Armstrong do battle. And then we’ll start jumping around the brackets a little — there’s no point doing things in order, right?

Anyway, please feel free to follow along on Twitter: @xkcdbracket.
