They had this one episode back in late December where these MIT kids went to the hotel. They had all these high tech computers and the hotel security thought they were going to mess up the odds on the machines to get more money. But they were there because they lost to Caltech in some engineering competition the week before and they made all the signs and laser light shows in Las Vegas say, "Caltech Sucks, MIT Rules."
Just thought that was interesting back when I saw it

Hmmm sounds interesting.
Have you read the book "Bringing Down the House"?
It's about the MIT blackjack team and, I must say, is quite awesome.

Hey, did MIT participate in the DARPA autonomous desert vehicle grand challenge?

I don't think they did.. I know CMU and Caltech did though. I base my reasoning off of the fact that CNN did not mention their name once (and you know they probably would if MIT had entered)

On the DARPA website MIT was not listed under the teams. This actually suprised me based on the fact that they have an AI lab, etc. I guess the 1 million dollar prize is chump change for MIT though.

It's possible MIT did have a team. Late last year, DARPA arbitrarily eliminated most of the teams, as there were too many entries. I can't find a list of the eliminated teams, however.
