Greetings from Paris!

Saturday, July 5, 2008

I've been so busy preparing for the Imagine Cup 2008 IT Challenge that I haven't had time to post anything. We arrived in Paris on Tuesday and started setting up as soon as we checked into the hotel.

For a comprehensive timeline of the IC2008 IT Challenge, please visit Rand's blog here. You can also see a video of one of the milestones of the challenge here.

We've been awake for 31 hours now and have one hour to go. The competition is 24 hours (starting at 2pm Friday Paris time) and ends in one hour. After that, the competitors will present their solutions and designs to the judges (Rand, Chris, Vally and myself) and then we will fill out our judging forms. Tabulation will take about an hour, so I might be able to go to sleep by 6pm (5 hours from now).

It's amazing what these kids have done in such a short amount of time. They all should be very proud of themselves!
