It’s hot here!

It’s a fascinating group here, an interesting mix of providers, volunteer board members and trustees, people with disabilities, and vendors.

I saw the coolest machine to help people eat. For folks who currently need to be fed, this machine offers the opportunity for some real, meaningful independence. by pushing a button you can select what you want to eat, the machine will scoop up a spoonfull and bring it to your mouth. If you’ve ever been to a class where other people feed you, you’ll know how demeaning and frustrating it is. Seeing technology like this that can make a real difference in someone’s life is what makes me proud to be a geek!
