It felt powerful and so poignant to me that I marched with Vicki, founder of SheEO, as she is single handedly changing the landscape for women entrepreneurs, but much more than that, creating a global support and mentor eco-system built on radical generosity. I am hopeful for the future my daughter is growing into. A world where women support women and where women will eventually get equal rights and respect. We will get there!

A big thank you to Offscreen Magazine for sponsoring this week’s RSS Feed.
These days it’s easy to be pessimistic or even cynical about the tech world. Too often, we hear about irresponsible leadership, unethical practices, or frivolous business ideas – all with the sole aim of making a quick buck or creating the next ‘unicorn’.
Offscreen Magazine is here to remind you of what’s good about tech.
Published three times per year in print only, Offscreen exists to break through the buzzwords and remind us of technology’s ultimate purpose: to advance humanity. We celebrate innovation through human stories and conversations. We seek to promote a tech community guided by ethical, sustainable, inclusive principles. We ask critical questions about how we shape technology and how technology shapes us.

Next time I have to break down a problem, I will remember George Heilmeier’s method for solving research challenges:
– What are you trying to do? Articulate your objectives using absolutely no jargon.
– How is it done today, and what are the limits of current practice?
– What is new in your approach and why do you think it will be successful?
– Who cares? If you are successful, what difference will it make?
– What are the risks?
– How much will it cost?
– How long will it take?
– What are the mid-term and final “exams” to check for success?
