Northern Bites on Discovery Channel Canada

Check out the Northern Bites on Discovery Channel Canada!

While we were at competition in Graz this summer, we were approached by a camera crew from the Discovery Channel. They hung around and filmed us for a few days, following our journey to the finals. It was really neat to have the camera crew there and the video came out really well. They managed to capture a lot of the excitement around the finals.

NAO 2.0

Looking snazzy

Aldeberan released a new promotional video for its updated model NAO robot. Notice the second camera! Very slick entertaining video. We’re very excited about the possibilities of the robot.

Barry boasts: ‘Bites like Benoit’ @ Convocation

At the 206th Convocation, Barry Mills, President of the college, took a moment to recognize the awesome achievements — and mention every teammate — of the Northern Bites 2007 squad and our World Champion status. Says Barry, we follow in Joan Benoit Samuelson‘s legacy. Graciously, Mrs. Benoit Samuelson sent her congratulations to us shortly after our victory in Atlanta.

Now, we have the selected audio of this shoutout. Thanks Barry! We’re so proud to follow you, Mrs. Benoit Samuelson! Roll, Northern Bites!

Our Blog Pages Look Better

So the Media, Contact, and Team Info pages on this blog have all gotten a brief facelift.

Media no longer says ‘In Progress’ and I included a link to our YouTube video page there, of which I’ll promise to finally get some of the full games up in the next couple of weeks.

The Contact page — actually, I didn’t update that page at all. Sorry.

Team Info includes the new 06/07 Northern Bites members + a few formatting updates.

Welcome to the New Northern Bites Website/Weblog

We’re on a newly-built server under our complete control, and as your browser is telling you, our new address is: (or just if you are on campus).

Most of the significant improvements are for the elite hackers that make up the Northern Bites team, but for our fans and admirers, we offer a new, sweet dns, real permalinks to pages like Archives and Contact, and much faster and smoother page loading.  Also, check the Media page for future updates which are comfortably expected in the coming decade.

Roll, nBites!

1-0 victory; visit from Drew Carey

Northern Bites escapes from the first round of pool play in Germany after a 1-0 victory against Spelman College in a cross-over match. We are now in the top 16 teams in the world, with a record of 1-1-1.
We were also graced by a visit from the famous comedian Drew Carey, who stayed to watch our match. He is in Germany to report the world cup and related happenings for the Travel Channel.
Earlier today we lost 0-8 to last years’ second place team, the Australian NUbots.
