Imagine Cup ’09 kicks off tonight in Cairo, Egypt with an opening ceremony at the Citadel. Ray Ozzie just told stories about when he was a student at University of Illinois and impressed by the developer of PLATO, innovators like Dan Bricklin, and how these students have an opportunity to solve real issues in the world with software. Joe Wilson is now continuing with the power of dreams coming true and how the world can use some more big, new dreams.
Over the next five days students will compete on how their ideas can make an impact. Good luck to all of these students during the competition.
