I wanted to point out that the Round One reports for the Embedded Invitational within Imagine Cup 2008 are due on Feb 1st – this Friday.  This will mark the end of participation opportunities for those not already signed up.  It’s not too late to join the competition though.  The Round One report, the entry submission required at this stage, is only 4 pages long.  In the report, the student must identify the problem they intended to solve with an embedded solution, describe that solution and relate the problem to the Imagine Cup 2008 theme of environmental awareness.

Sound like something you’d like to try?  If you are a fulltime student and are interested in competing on a global stage with like minded students in Paris, France for prize money of upwards to $15,000, come register at the Imagine Cup 2008 site.

If you reach the finals in Paris, mention coupon code #3572 to me and I’ll buy you a Café Noisette.  The cuisses de grenouilles didn’t go over as well as I’d hoped in the planning meetings.
