Our local Lego Challenge team's new robot. Built on wheels w/ servo arm attached. Also comes with two push/bump sensors, an RGB color eye sensor, an "ultrasonic" (object distance measure) sensor, associated cables and miscellani Lego bits. MindStorms programming here we come.

Yes indeed! We are Team 15660 - The Autobots. We have about 8 team members but had only one robot, so there was a lot of waiting to download to the robot & test. This is a 2nd one so now there should be more time for individual trial and error. Great fun! Zimmer did the Junior First Lego Challenge last year for the younger kids and enjoyed it. This is the next level - trying to get a robot to do something, but they figure it out quickly! It is hard to get the robot to do things just right though :)

Wonder if this latest facebook content filtering-pushing bullshit is enough to open the big window for google+ ? ...though G+ does already promote some random "propular" posts... probably just so it doesn't quite seem like you're lurking in an empty room.

What do you expect? From business to implementation Facebook has always been a sleazy company.  Microsoft could get away with it for decades because their software was inextricably tied to real life commodity hardware. Not so for Facebook.

A lot of biomass is rolling over to tumblr. I doubt G+ will end up with much of Facebook's mom-n-pop and teenage flavors though.
