RT Sick'em Puer: "...how can it be so difficult to find out the price when you call up and ask?" Your guess is as good as ours.

OK right. Vinod Khosla at #qs15 says algorithms and machine learning will replace doctors soon. So far I have lost 0.00 seconds of sleep.

Ok, a side project of mine, Prana, is live on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1MDvCpT

I'm super excited to finally have a tool to support using breathing techniques (and posture) to improve health and well-being. I've recommended specific breathing patterns to patients (and family) for years - it's amazingly effective for stress reduction, improving focus or energy, and many other applications. But implementation and encouragement have been difficult, since not everyone has access to a private Ayengar yoga teacher. So i've been lucky to help guide development of a device that meets my own needs and specifications.

And it'll augment an Apple Watch nicely, since you can't track breathing from the wrist. ;-)
