Kevin Clague awarded James Jessiman Memorial Award

While not solely related to the NXT, I felt this was close enough to a lot of readers interests to post it. Kevin Clague, one of the members of the MUP program from the early days of the NXT, has been awarded the James Jessiman Memorial Award for 2007. This award is given out to someone who has helped or contributed to the continued legacy of James Jessiman, the young man who wrote the first community LEGO design program (LDraw) and defined the early format for the data files way back in 1995. While James died at the age of 26, what he started has grown into the LDraw community, and the community and the family of James usually announce an award for someone who has been instrumental in the LDraw community. Kevin Clague has been contributing since 2002, with software like LPub and LSynth (for publishing and modeling flexible elements) as well as being a co-author of the popular book "LEGO Software Power Tools" and playing an organizational role within the LDraw organization itself. Congratulations, Kevin, for being awarded this honor - and thank you for a heck of a lot of hard work behind the scenes as well, especially for those of us that have used some of your tools in making instruction sets.
