      Turner Broadcasting is to sponsor Dare to be Digital..

      that can only be good for the competition I suspect. But interesting that a more traditional media company is getting in on the act…they own CNN etc.

      Have they been hosted in Trinity before?
      Would be cool for IET class to give pointers to entrants as a distraction from dissertations, though we would probably be more interested in new Wii Tennis competitors :)

      I don’t believe it is any secret; the winning teams were Infection Vector (Dundalk IT) and Outer Box Experience (UUMagee).

      We are hosting the teams in our XNA lab in TCD for the next 9 weeks. They’re visiting us for the first time tomorrow afternoon and then will kick off proper next Monday.

      Best of luck to them!
      Steve
