How 4 Vatos from the Desert KICKED MIT's ASS!
If you thought the movie Hoosiers was inspiring, read this story from Wired about 4 undocumented high schoolers from Phoenix hammered the college boys to win an underwater ROV competition. Then cough up the some dough to help get these guys educated. We want them on our team! Andale, amigos!
La Vida Robot How four underdogs from the mean streets of Phoenix took on the best from MIT in the national underwater bot championship. By Joshua Davis from Wired magazine.

Back on the ranch...no really, I used to be a ranch hand a LONG time ago, we had to catch chickens with a wire hook on a stick. It was great fun! But, if you gotta catch a whole shitload of chicken's, whats a ranch hand to do. You MUST see the video......lets just hope the airlines don't get hold of this - The Bright Coop Chicken Catcher!!!

One of my favorite marketing commentators, Hugh McLeod of GapingVoid Link , often talks about the need to connect your offering with people's spirit.
Steve Fossett, Burt Rutan and Richard Branson have succeed! While one man is flying solo aroung the world, millions are following his progress - the human spirit of adventure is alive and well.Link

As I write this Steve Fossett has just flown the Burt Rutan designed global flyer into Libyan airspace. Why he is flying solo, the rest of us can fly along virtually thanks to the folks at The Heavenly Hanger - download the MS Flight Sim version Link
Otherwise follow the flight live on Virgin Atlantics GlobalFlyer Mission Tracker. These folks are just plain bad ass! Link
