This newsletter was released on August 7th, 2009. No need to vote any more -- we won!

We need your help -- tonight!

The NerdKits Meat Thermometer video enjoyed a comfortable lead in the IEEE Engineering Your World competition until just a few hours ago. Jewel De Designe has put up a late in the game surge with only hours left in the voting. We are now trailing them by a few votes as of the time of this writing, and we need your help now more than ever to win it. If you have not yet voted, please create a free account and vote for our video!

Voting ends at midnight eastern time.

To vote for our video you first need to create a web account with IEEE. This only takes a few minutes, and is completely free. If you already have an IEEE account, you can skip to step 4.

  1. Go to: http://www.ieee.org/go/create_web_account
  2. Click on "Create an IEEE account" and follow the instructions.
  3. Their UI for this is kind of odd so be careful: your username needs to be ALL-CAPS and password needs to be at least 8 characters (if you don't meet their criteria the first time you have to start the form all over)
  4. Once you have an account go here: http://www.ieee125.org/celebrate/engineering-your-world/index.html
  5. Click on the Sign In link towards the top right corner. (If you click on the individual links you might end up on their forums somewhere)
  6. Once you sign in with your new username and password it will take you back to the page where you can vote. Our video is Meat Thermometer, the second one from the top.

We really appreciate your vote!
