Happy Saturday! It's been a busy day ... 20k cross country ski workout ... attend the Minnesota Lego League Robotics Championship ... and now my blog. The treat was the Lego tournament. I watched the best 80 teams from across the state compete in robotics, which leads me to this podcast:
After having just watched hundreds of kids spend an entire day (and months of preparation), I understand what a great job Lego and National Instruments did with the new product release. This podcast is good for two reasons:
- I love Legos! Always have ... always will!
- The podcast is a classic viral marketing case study of the huge benefits a company will reap if they include their lead users in the product design and roll-out. I know in our household, we had access to Mindstorms NXT before the official release!
Only seven days till the high school robotics team which I coach competes in their state tournament!
