    Congrats to all the entrants, and to the winners! Most praiseworthy of all is Amy’s initiative in launching this initiative.

    I hope the various device and software manufacturers currently in the diabetes market — and others outside of it — take note of the creativity in the community. Perhaps the folks at IDEO would like to launch a “crowdsourced” website for diabetes innovation, as a side project? Maybe a venture capital firm — like the one that’s investing $100M in iPhone applications — would be interested in some corporate philanthropy mixed with investment possibilities and sponsor the site as a year-round virtual think tank.

    The first step in making new technology to serve human needs is to dream it. Thanks again, Amy, for helping everyone see the dreams.

    First, I really loved the entries. I’m excited to see Logs for Life later this summer. It seems like a thoughtfully designed site from the screenshots.

    Second, Amy, I think you did a fantastic job with this contest and it will only grow from here. I really look forward to seeing next year’s competition. My only suggestion is to announce it at the beginning of 2009 and allow a full five months for submissions. This would give you more time to promote it and the entrants more time to develop their proposals.

    Good stuff all around!
