(®) (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and
Technology) will be joined by public figures to launch the 2013
season of the FIRST(® )Robotics Competition (FRC(®)) with a
worldwide Kickoff event originating from Manchester, N.H.
-- The 2013 season will include an estimated 2,550 teams (nearly
51,000 high-school students) participating in 77 Regional and
District events. All teams, grades 9-12, will be shown the 2013
robotics game field and challenge for the first time and will
receive an exciting, new Kit of Parts made up of motors, batteries,
a control system, and a mix of automation components – but no

year’s engineering challenge.
Dignitaries and public figures will deliver remarks on video and in
person, including (in order of appearance):
-- Dean Kamen, President, DEKA Research and Founder, FIRST;
-- Margaret Wood Hassan, Governor of New Hampshire;
-- Dr. Woodie Flowers, FIRST Executive Advisory Board

Accomplished inventor Dean
Kamen founded FIRST in 1989 to inspire an appreciation
of science and technology in young people. The FIRST
Robotics Competition (FRC) is an annual competition that
challenges high-school students – working alongside professional
Mentors – to design and build a robot of their own, and compete in
a ‘Sport for the Mind™’ that measures the effectiveness of each
robot, the power of teamwork and collaboration, and Gracious
Professionalism®. Students build and program their own
robots against a field of competitors and experience the
excitement of science, engineering, technology, and innovation.

FIRST will unveil the details of the new 2013 robotics
competition game after the speaker program. Students on the new
game field take measurements and inspect the challenge in order to
develop strategies for robot construction, and to determine if
they will play offense, defense, or both.
Last week as I was writing Amazon Declares War on VMware, VMware was preparing to announce the acquisition of a pro services team to aid in cloud migration (see coverage in CRN): VMware Acquires Professional Services Firm To Boost Cloud Migration, DevOps Expertise. You can get my thoug...
As this year comes to a close, let's take one last look at the most pervasive cloud computing trends -- including increased usage across the different cloud service models, the key business drivers and the impact of agile innovation strategies.
Many workloads are already in the cloud: Most organizations today run at least some workloads in the cloud. For newer organizations, they will often run ALL of their workloads in the cloud. For cloud-based workloads, sending log data to a cloud-based logging provider is not quite as bi...
Cloud computing seems to still be one of the reigning buzzwords in high-tech these days. Everything is either “in the cloud”, “powered by the cloud”, or some variation on the theme. I remember when hosted email was just that: hosted email. Today, such offerings are considered cloud off...
Many projected use cases for IoT won’t directly generate revenues. To achieve greater efficiency, companies are deploying IoT sensors internally throughout their organizations to optimize their use of everything from computer servers to lighting to HVAC systems to employee productivity...
