A Long Overdue Congratulations to Acid Rain and Park IT

I know I’m a bit late in offering my congratulations, but I wanted to make sure that those of you who hadn’t heard by now that Ireland had 2 finalists in the Imagine Cup 2008 competition found out.

I had written about the Park IT Team Park IT from Sligo IT on April 11th. They made the trip to Paris and represented Ireland in the Software Design category. While they didn’t win, they deserve a huge congratulations on their unique and innovative solution.

Well done to to the whole Part IT Team
