Jon Orwant's Internet Quiz Show
Tuesday Evening

Jon Orwant's Internet Quiz Show

Back by popular demand! The Internet Quiz Show pits teams of four against each other in a battle of wits, ingenuity, and speed. Jon Orwant hosts this fun filled fact hunt where knowledge of Internet technology and culture is put to the test.

The Internet Quiz contestants are for the first time revealed here. The Defending Champions, as their name suggests, were the winning team last year, and are back to claim another title. They won in a hotly-contested battle that came down to the very last question.

Unfortunately, the other team was entirely British, and they didn't know the name of Clinton's dog, and lost the championship to an American team. Their indignation over the unfairness is what led to them calling themselves "The President's Dog" this year.

The teams and contestants:

The President's Dog (London.pm)
Dave Cross
Peter Haworth
Paul Makepiece
Leon Brocard

Musician's Friends
Erik Arneson
Scott Alexander
Andrew Dubry
Justin Rubaloff

And an alternate:

Jarkko Hietaniemi
Elaine Ashton
Kurt Starsinic
Ask Bjorn Hansen
   Defending Champions
Derek Balling
Alex Lewin
