MAKE: Technology on your time, Dean Kamen Interview

I got a subscription to this for Christmas and I really got into with this latest Volume, Volume 4. To my surprise flipping in just a few pages from the cover was a picture of Dean tinkering at Westwind. The interview in the mag only had a one liner specific to FIRST but the interview was pretty good. The expanded version is located here:

MAKE 04, Dean Kamen: The Dean of Engineering

Already posted.

This was my favorite part of the interview:

Dean’s insight above, that today’s established truth will eventually be shown to be false, is one of the important reasons for experienced people to do extra-curricular things like mentoring a FIRST team. Helping high-schoolers, who are discovering laws of physics and principles of engineering for the first time, helps keep the understanding of those laws and principles from becoming too rigid in our own minds.
