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.

The Spirit of Adventure - 76 million people fly along with Steve Fossett online.

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

Pilot the GlobalFlyer!

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
