Hi Ian,

We're glad you liked it. :-)

We considered using other datasets (for example, we thought geographic questions
could've been potentially interesting), and it would be indeed nice to expand
the scope of the quiz to other fields, as you suggest.

It wouldn't be so straightforward to do so out-of-the-box (in a refined version,
first of all we'd need to carry the logic to the server-side; because of the
contest rules, all the queries were done via javascript from the browser), but
we plan to upload the code to GitHub (maybe in November) and we can further
discuss from there.

Cheers!
