My goal is to help people. And curiosity has gotten me here.

finding all the geniuses inside.. waiting to be seen/heard/loved.

ie:

I’m so happy to share the documentary that I’ve been working on with Microsoft for the last 8 months. Please watch all three episodes… The last one will change the way you look at technology.

Meet Easton: the young engineer making his mark in the world of robotic limbs

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOyTflNqTiE&feature=youtu.be]

there’s this whole other human element.. which is.. what tech is actually helping

if i’m going to do what i like.. and i’m very lucky  to know what i like.. i’m going to go out and do it on my own..

imagine 7 bn able to do that.. as the day.. via tech from a whole other human element..

ie: hlb via 2 convos that io dance.. as the day..[aka: not part\ial.. for (blank)’s sake…]..

a nother way

my goal is not to have a lot of money in this.. it’s to get this tech to people who need it
