Re: UK Micromouse 2006: Video
> I think sharing them on your site is an excellent idea - please feel free to stream the videos (credits where due e.g. Shannon Hall).
After reading your email, and going through the videos on the site, I
think what I will do is to put up the introductory video about
UKMM2006 (it's about 2 minutes long) and point readers to your site
for the longer, more detailed videos. The really dedicated MM folks
will watch a 10+ minute video, in fact they will watch it until they
turn blue in the face, but most of my readers have short attention
spans. Anything longer than 2 minutes and they click off to somewhere
else in cyberspace. !:')
> Micromouse is active and growing in the UK, and we welcome international competitors to UK micromouse.
It looks like you've started to get some international participation.
The guys (and gals) from Singapore are really killer. They wiped out
the top Japanese MM competitors last Fall here. But, from what I've
heard the Japanese are determined to take back the lead this year.
> The ones I dropped on to http://micromouse.tic.ac.uk first were not streamed because I needed our IT guys to set that up - we have some streamed video of the entire event on the site now.
They're doing a good job with the streaming setup - quite good
actually. So I'll just go with the intro video as I mentioned above.
That should give your efforts some additional exposure and generate

Of course! I would be happy to. It was mentioned on Robots Dreams
about a week ago in this post:
But I would be glad to give it another plug. I'm a member of the forum
(Tempusmaster). One suggestion, it would be great if they could add an
RSS feed to the forum. Without RSS, I, and other members, have to
remember to go back and check to see what discussions are going on.
All the best,
