I meet up with Tima who’s a business student. We discussed the Squirrel project and she added some good insights almost right away.
I think it’s great to get a fresh point of view.
One thing that came up was the idea of including glue. This has been looked at and I am already including glue in some of the Squirrels that reach places such as Canadian soldiers stationed in Afghanistan or Sierra Leon. That’s because I’m not sure how easy it is to get the right brand of glue there.
But Tima had a better idea which was to charge for the glue and have it as a basic option. I really like the idea and will take a look at it.
This would lower the friction to getting people to start the project since it’s one less thing for users to have or buy.
It will be interesting to see what else Tima and her classmates comes up with.
