This past week, I became the first woman in herstory (i.e. history) to track her flow using a tampon monitor! With the help of Jacob and the amazing mentors at HAX, I strapped up to our lovely PCB (printed circuit board) and was able to determine that my tampon was 42% full within 2 hours of insertion. So among other awesome implications, my pants were spared :-). Pretty neat stuff, huh?
Last few days in China and even more monumentally, here at HAX. Demo Day here May 6th and back home (SF) on May 17th, with the goal of getting more people on board with our mission. It's a sort of nerdtopia here, with all 15 companies in the batch and even more HAX alums burning the midnight oil - with the office never fully empty at any hour, even on weekends - working solely on projects we're deeply passionate about, because someone believes in us and our vision. Going back to our home countries, we won't be losing that individual passion, but realistically nothing replaces such a tight community of makers and dreamers.
Somewhere I always knew that school wasn't where I'd do the real learning...
Love and Insight,
