Yes, I've fixed that (I think) and sent a mail with the updated url.

Since I guess the names in the Google page come from the own interns' submission I respected those...

Thanks, I will update the URL when I come back near my keyboard.

I would prefer to focus this article in the students. I propose that we publish anither post when evaluations are done, thanking mentors and encouraging contributors to get involved in next rounds.

In any case, I will try a table showing all the info (projects, mentors and interns) to see how it looks like, and if it's nice (the blog output, mobile view etc) I may change the appearance to that.

Thanks for the review!
