Last week I popped up to the Gold Coast to check out the Robotic Olympics. It was great to sit and chat with some Microsoft guys (Dave Lemphers, Chuck Sterling, Nic Fillingham) and some ex-Microsoft Guys (Joel Pobar)
I was really impressed with the way the Korean and Japanese governments have got behind their kids, Korea actually booked a whole plane to get their students out here. It really put the Australian effort to shame.
We sat their stunned as these 10/11 year old kids where recompiling C++ code that was edited in notepad. I am guessing thats where the future of robotics will be for another generation.
We took some footage for MSDN Channel Nine so hopefully I will link to that soon.
