I don't blame him; buffalo isn't quite the hotbed for technology!

Tyler's main interests are computer programming and signal processing, and, with a doublet of engineers on this project it was time to go look for people to help make it happen.

Google.org - Uninterested

WHO - Sounds good, come back when you have products ready

NGOs who distribute med devices - Sounds good, come back when you have products ready

Gates Foundation - No response

Sand Hill Road - "Soft No's"

Hanergy - No response

Or should I say... didn't care too much.

Is anybody out there?

At mid-July, Tyler took a job debugging code to upgrade from ramen noodles to chicken strips, and I continued polishing up some of the work we had to share with the hope of finding some sort of path forward.
