You might be aware that there are thousands of engineers of many disciplines around the world who are trying to self organize to help in this effort in any way we can. An example is helpfulengineering.org.

I wonder what, if anything, you think we might be able to help with. There are now thousands of volunteers, and there may be resources to pursue many different ideas at the same time.

I know there are active projects to fabricate PPE, such as face masks. I have heard that there are people trying to figure out how to fabricate new ventilators and similar equipment. There are other projects underway to connect doctors across the globe.

If someone could provide you with extra ventilators or other equipment like CPAPs it BIPAPs, but you could only have a few features, what features would be most important?

What problems would you like thousands of engineers to work on right now to help you and your colleagues?

Thank you so much for taking the time, and especially for taking care of us all. We're in your debt.

Thanks very much for doing this.

If you had the opportunity to advise someone who knew they were going to prison, what advice would you give them? Anything they should do to prepare? Anything they should know to be able to survive and come out on the other side as well as possible?
