Nice meeting today.

We went around and shared empathy projects we worked on over the past 2 weeks.
Everyone has been working on some very interesting aspects.
Video of meeting is here.

We planned to review papers and we didn't get to that since we did a lot of background discussion. Please share some meeting insights..
  • I like, ...
  • I wish, ...
  • what if... 

I think we need to take better minutes of the meetings. Maybe have a rotation minutes taker? What do you think?

Next meeting will start 30 minutes earlier.
Monday Mar 15 - 10:30 PST.
