    We need to get physics girl into the robotics fray.

    "When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

    just wondering,

  • One reason that there are not many women in robotics is that most of you guys don't like this picture!
