Our Team News

Our team will be learning how to communicate.  This blog post might be used for a daily update on what's been done, what needs to be done.

We will most likely use Twitter as well, and maybe a discussion forum.  

In the past, we have used discussion forums to share ideas when not in the room together, like brainstorming about robot design or programming or just logistics of our matches.  

Twitter can be helpful for quick news like if a meeting is cancelled due to weather, or to get the team to meet up when we're at a match. As for now, I'm going to assume our Twitter Hashtag will be #FRC4509.  Team members, do NOT abuse this please!  Your mentors (okay, Reilly at least) and others may not have unlimited texting yet, and it could cost big bucks.  Also, we don't want to cry wolf and make people ignore texts.
