I live in an island in the south of Brazil, where is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. At work some colleagues call me "crazy" Paulo, because I. I'm always proposing ideas, with humour. I work as an engineer and I try to motivate and challenge the team. I also work as a professor in a public management course, in business process management and other disciplines. I started working with innovation in 2009 and recently with design thinking.
Thank you Alan, I have read other messages between you and other people explaining this point, but I believe it needs to be very clear in your proposal. I am also concerned about the plastic consumption and the disposal, and all efforts to reduce the impact would be welcome. Other question. In the historic of messages you say it is necessary to convince the industry, or at least it is what I felt in the reading. I think the user - the buyer of water and other liquids that use this innovative bottle must be engaged in this change, and the way it could be done is a important issue. I also would like to know if you have thought about the patent issue. What if a company or a person ask for the patent of this new design - the place to put the cap? It would prevent other companies to adopt the solution.
A very interesting proposal. It would be interesting to explain the maintenance of the equipments used in the kit. Other issue is to make more clear the type of Internet connection used, and how to use in case of no connection.
