Is there a recording available for today's conf call on btc?
This fellow is producing faceshields for health care, police, and other workers right here in Hawaii. I've already offered to use my 3D printer to create the headband parts for the effort. But surely this is something that the Entrepreneur's Sandbox could be used for, not just the 3D printing but setting up a mini-manufacturing facility, with volunteers from the entrepreneur community, to create thousands of these. And how about setting up an effort to produce the cloth face masks that are now recommended that EVERYONE wear? There are several local companies that produce them but they are all out of stock. These are efforts that we NEED. The Sandbox could be a significant participant in this effort. https://www.facebook.com/donate/2695654207388404
This project is so massive, "it's like co-working on steroids". 💪
