Or how about a microphone that doesn't need the speaker to carry around a huge battery pack on them at all! In this day and age where we have AirPods, it seems like it should be possible.

I'm more annoyed by the way microphones are designed. Women can't wear that huge battery pack when they're wearing a dress. The microphone clip is designed for men's shirts, not women's, so the clip doesn't go on the correct side. Clearly designed by men, for men! :-P

I'd like to share some reflections on the death of a patient. I’ve thought about her a lot. She gave me explicit consent to tweet the details of her case, about four hours before she died. Her hope was that someone might benefit from her experience. /1
