It's amazing what can be done if you just sit for five minutes being still and focusing on one single problem/challenge/idea.

It's just an app. It's not going to redefine how we look at the world and we won't pay for it.

unless. it's not just an app.. but a link.. hypertext .. to personal fabrication..

and.. it's free via public Ed...

That's the default position that startups need to overcome. The key is simplicity. The enemy, complexity and BS.

Choose Kind Even When You Want Change via@pernilleripp

When I push my students to grow and change I do it with kindness and persistence.  I ask themto prove everybody wrong, I ask them to prove themselves wrong.  I ask them to grow and to learn from this journey.  So it is only fair I ask it of  everyone else as well.  Before we enter debates, choose kind.   Choose open mindedness, choose the higher road.  Choose to see both sides even if your heart lies on one of them.  ask for a debate and proceed knowing that there are people with pride involved, people who have invested in what you want to change.  People like ourselves who are only doing things because they believe in the good of them, not because they want to hurt others.  It is time we, as adults, choose kind like our students and give others the respect they deserve.  Even if we think they have the wrongest opinion of them all.
