Cool idea . However anything to do with wireless tech and biology concerns me merely because of hacks . If your biological status can be monitored wireless there's nothing stopping someone hijacking the signal .

Went to the C100 event to hear pitches by Canadian startups that are visiting Silicon Valley looking for founder advice, and capital.
The take away from tonight: Shoot for your dreams & go big but be prepared. Silicon Valley has a lot higher bar than you might expect.

The best quote of the evening:
"All investors really care about is revenue... What. Are you crying over there?"

Yeah, there are a lot of people who think they have great start-up ideas. Shows like Shark Tank and Dragon's Den make it pretty obvious too. Have a solid business plan, and/or have a patent.

I think this would be a wonderful challenge & beautiful! Anyone interested? Anyone in Japan doing this?

The Japanese Odyssey is a bicycle endurance event. It starts in Sapporo on Hokkaido and covers the four major Japanese islands to Kagoshima in the South. Entrants will have to ride approximately 2700 km across various landscapes offering spectacular sceneries.
An epic, one-stage, endurance bicyle journey across Japan.

Sharing some photos from a recent book launch by Wendy Wallbridge called "Spiraling Upward", Something I've been exploring lately is my desire to find a career that is align with my values. This book seems to address why so many successful women stumble, become depressed and become dissatisfied with their lives. Wallbridge thinks it's because we schools compare our success road map with men's.

Here's my post to learn more: http://lynnewatanabe.com/spiraling-upward/

Last night was a night of women developers and entrepreneurs; clearly under represented in the tech industry, the IBM #BlueMixGirls panel was not short on leadership and mentoring. Very inspiring and a fun group.

The tech part of the evening was the IBM demo of their new PAAS Cloud competitor, BlueMix and all their apps. We especially liked the use of Watson and their personality analyzer. You can enter text and Watson quickly figures out the personality character traits of it's author. (We joked that we have just created a new business... A Match dot com profile date analyzer! Just think, you wouldn't have to screen through all the incompatibilities! OR you can try to cheat and rewrite something and try to get better results.)

Consider taking this class, in 8 weeks it is proven to make students happy. And it's free! I started this class tonight and found this education platform well executed for both auditory and visual learning styles. You can set the video speed dial and listen faster or slower and read the content on the side of the video. The course can be taken for credit if you wish for a fee.
---

“The Science of Happiness” will offer students practical strategies for nurturing their own happiness. Research suggests that up to 40 percent of happiness depends on our habits and activities. So students will learn many different research-tested practices that foster social and emotional well-being—and the course will help them track their happiness along the way.

The course’s co-instructors, Dacher Keltner and Emiliana Simon-Thomas, are not only leading authorities on positive psychology but also gifted teachers skilled at making science feel fun and personal. They’ll be joined by world-renowned experts discussing themes like empathy, mindfulness, and gratitude—experts including Barbara Fredrickson, Paul Ekman, Sonja Lyubomirsky, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. Health professionals who register can earn continuing education units for their participation.

Introduction
Hi!  I mostly post on G+ about cycling.

I like the social aspect which the G+ cycling communities brings.
#BikeCommuterCabal #BCC

Other than my passion for cycling (& dining along a long bike route), I enjoy learning. I'm interested in media marketing/events & new tech: quantified-self/wearables, mhealth /telemedicine, start-ups. I enjoy art history/art, traveling, funk/ R&B /Soul/ 80's /classical /Jazz/broadway musicals, and gardening.
