I love it when a blog post shows up in my email already written. Makes my life so much easier. :-)

Subject: Technology Awareness Day (TAD)
I had the opportunity to see a demo of the Sun SPOTS when I attended
the Software and Java Ambassador training in January. I talked to you about
obtaining a development kit for a Community Event that we do in
Fort Worth, TX. I have participated in Technology Awareness Days for
7 years and find the students very interested in learning about our
technology. The event is for low income students and they are there
to learn about Technology and Educational opportunities so both companies
and Colleges/Universities participate.
The Sun SPOT development kit was a huge success and I wanted to
share a couple of pics of the event so you could see how it is being
used. I have also been able to demo it at a Texas Instruments Developers
Symposium and took it to Austin and Houston when I was doing
Partner updates on our technology.
Last year we demo'd Looking Glass and I had a student come by this year and
ask for more info. This shows that they really do listen to what we say
and are interested in technology.
So thanks for providing a great tool to showcase Sun Technology.
