I just love seeing where Blender pops up sometimes. Having been a boy scout myself, I can't help but feel a little jealous of the current generation ;-)

The Boy Scouts of America included an entire couple of pages on Blender in it's recent booklet for the Animation Merit Badge. They said this, (and I quote), about the software, "Blender (TM) is an open-source computer application that you can use to create professional-quality 3-D animations. Some of the examples in this pamphlet were created using Blender. The software is for personal and commercial use. To download it (with your parents permission), go to http://www.blender.org. Do an internet search (with permission) for Blender 3-D animations and tutorials to learn everything you can do with the software." They also gave a tour of part of it's UI, as well as a model of Sintel and some screenshots from Tears of Steel and Big Buck Bunny. Kudos to the BSA for raising awareness about Blender!
