* Personalized URL: There should be a personalized URL that an existent user can forward to their friends/acquaintence e.t.c
This would be a good metric that will allow YC to track who is actively reffering users. - Source : Adeel Khan
* Notify me when someone responds to me on forums: "I just need a feature that shows everything I've received a reply to.
I'm getting a shit ton of notifications and what I really care about are just replies. Their should be a way to filter by that."

* Maybe the 'W2020 Announcements' section should be emerging in a notification panel. It's buried in the forums.

-- Ping contact to get in touch with the founder at Spira Inc. Sounds like a similar proposition. Can learn from journey.
* Regarding Materials Science, here is an initial list of breakthroughs that I am personally interested in seeing:
Personally interested in furthering the research (and then applying it)
-- Ultra-high temperature ceramics that we could use on Venus (For large scale sequestration).
-- Super-conducting materials at regular/room temperatures (Ideally: without the need to expend a lot of energy.)
-- Advanced and safe brain machine interfaces

* Evening schedule has been a struggle.
* Today : Different strategy. More focus on networking. As well, reaching out to some of the folks that I care about.
* I started eating rice again. I am not sure if this is a good thing or not. Probably not very good for the brain.
As rice turns faster to sugar, which spikes up blood-sugar. Not great for insulin regulation. Not so great for the brain.

* The 'Do things that don't scale' article via PG is super rich. Worth reading over and over again. PG, somehow manages to
pack a ton of information in a single article. The gist of the article is totally on topic: A lot of startup founders

- "Tough times never last, but tough people do" - Dr. Robert Schuller. [Note: I am certainly
not religious. But choosing not to learn from someone who may be religious, is ridiculous. Besides, the quote rings true]
