Web error names the Booker Prize winner early

Entertainment Weekly Says Last week, as the newly revamped award, now called the Man Booker Prize, launched its new website, it inadvertently revealed the name of the winner, little-known Canadian novelist Yann Martel.

Lisa Jardine, the Booker jury’s chairwoman, told Britain’s Guardian newspaper that the glitch was an honest mistake, an accidental posting of test copy written for the site’s trial, and that Martel still had a ”one in six chance.”

They say oddsmakers didn’t buy that explanation and called off all bets.

Thanks again to Jen Young for another one.
