Yeah, that Dave Palmer sure is a swell guy.

Seriously, though, it's interesting to learn about the work all of these individuals are doing.  It was great to see a college student on the list -- especially one who is going to school while working full time.

It would be great if there were more women on the list, but unfortunately, I think this reflects the relatively low number of women in the engineering, especially electrical and mechanical engineering.  Hopefully, in coming years, we will start to see a greater proportion of women on lists like this.

Thanks Lauren. I agree--I noticed that Dave Palmer, who writes occasional columns for us, was on the list. And many of the others are also doing some fascinating work.

It's great to see a woman in this list. Lauren, are there more women among the finalists you'll be posting tomorrow?
