Hi Sarah,

  Your work is really neat! Would you be willing to show us some of it at
a future cyborg meeting, perhaps next month? We hold monthly-ish
meetings Sunday afternoons starting at 4 pm in the Noisebridge space
(2169 Mission St). Might Nov. 7 or 21 work for you?

  To the local Bay Area cyborgs, who's free Nov. 7 or Nov. 21? (I'm at a
conference Nov. 14.)  It'd be great to have everyone show-and-tell their
current work. Automated zebrafish heartbeat sensing, Todd? Eric and I
should have a complete pulse choker prototype for you to try on by then.

  To the remote cyborgs, book your plane tickets and visit! ;) Also, what
makes the EMG sensor you speak of specific for furry-tech, Mikolaj?

  Sarah, does wanting to add electronic eyelashes or wings count in the
adding-limbs-that-humans-don't-normally-have genre?
