Hi all,

Just a quick update on our progress- the deadline for getting in a Maker
proposal was today! (you got 5 1/4 hours so get going!)

>From the Backstage / R&D area we're sending a team of between six and eight
people, including Ian, Rain and myself, plus some of the guys from Kingswood
Warren (if you came to Mashed you may have met a few of them).  Our plan is
to 'do something with weather data and little robots and maybe some sort of
RFID', and if any 'backstagers' are intertested in coming along to the event
we'd be chuffed to bits to catch up and even use a bot of your expertise.

It's lilely we may need a bit of a hand munging feeds, writing control
routines for the robots or even just hacking the R/C toys we plan to use as
chassis for the robots, so do come along if you can.

There'll be a proper post on the Backstage blog ina day or so, I'm blogging
at Reithian, and at some point in th enext week BBCWeatherbot.com should go

See you there!
