Chief Delphi Users -
I’ve made a few obscure posts here in the past, and now that school is back in full swing I’m hoping to get more serious.
I’ve started a new FIRST community that intends to bring together people from FIRST with people that need to know about FIRST (schools and the government). On one end I’ve created a website that is centered around FIRST videos, with a MySpace kinda feel. I’m hoping to get as many members as possible; adding their own videos, rating and commenting on videos that are already there, and creating connections between other users. There are also video contests that users can vote on.
On the other end, I intend to use these videos to promote FIRST within schools that do not have teams, or are trying to convince their school to start a team. I’d strongly encourage people trying to start a team to use my site as a tool to explain FIRST to their teachers and principals.
FIRST Objective is a free site with no advertising or spam. Take a minute to check it out and sign up if you think my idea is worth while. For people that have already signed up, go back and check it out again. Maybe take a few minutes and vote for your favorite videos in the monthly video contest (top of front page).
There will also be a major announcement coming this Thanksgiving that will be of great interest to any existing FIRST FRC team. Check out FIRST Objective for more details in the near future.
So, get connected, show off your videos (I may have already added some if they are on YouTube), and also help out the students that are trying to get a team started in their own school. Sign up now at www.firstobjective.org
