Google Video + Autodesk = FIRST

Google now does video. The Link above is for the Google Video search results page for the word "AUTODESK". I am posting this because the "first" several results are about FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

FIRST's main purpose is to inspire an appreciation of science and technology in young people. Founded by Dean Kamen (the inventor of the Segway - Human Transporter) FIRST's goals is " create a world where science, and technology are celebrated...where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes..."

I have had the honor of hearing Mr. Kamen give a keynote speech and when it comes to providing direction and alternatives to young people this group has done so.

I have often been inspired by the accomplishments of this group and had to mention them.
