  31. Champion: none. Public now believes that this is easily repeatable.
  32. Iteration: Steve Fossett Search Inadequate training for volunteers. Many false positives. People called SAR teams directly which hindered search.
  33. Anti-Pattern “In hindsight, I wish it hadn’t been there, because it didn’t produce a darn thing that was productive except for being a giant black hole for energy, time and resources. There may come a day when this technology is capable of doing what it says it can deliver, but boy, that’s not now.” - Maj. Cynthia Ryan http://www.humanitarian.info/2007/11/08/the-perils-of-the-distributed-approach/

  35. New Champions: InternetSAR “ABSOLUTELY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES are InternetSAR.org participants to report objects found in imagery we provide directly to search authorities. [...] The reason for this policy is that our systems are set up to manage and filter reports for search teams and those who bypass our reporting system can actually impede the efforts of search teams.”
