  • Blog Post: IC08: Imagine Cup 2008 - Will Team SOAK win a place?

    They presented well. They were creative, clear, and compelling. They were funny, and yet discussed one of the most serious problems facing Australia, and the world, today - efficient water handling in agriculture. But were Team SOAK good enough?

    We’ll we all made it to Paris. I got in last night, and Karo arrived with most of the Australian Winners, Team SOAK this morning.
