Hi everyone!

I'm here for the Applied Category Theory Course. I recently graduated with an Sc.B. in Computer Science, but should have taken more pure math. I'm definitely interested in this whole "saving the planet" thing, but I'm not sure where to start (ranked choice voting?). Interest dump: programming languages, logic, reflection, exploration, freedom, and dogs.

Hi! When it comes to saving the planet, there's so much to do that we should probably each take what we're best at, figure out how to turn it toward this goal, and do that. For example I'm really good at abstract math, so - after some false starts I realized I should take that talent, turn it

awayfrom pure mathematics and fundamental physics, and turn ittowardsmath that can help us design better systems: "ecotechnology". That's why I'm doing applied category theory. It's probably not the best thinganyonecan do to save the planet, but it might be the best thingIcan do. And so here we are!`Hi!

Thanks for your insightful response! I'll give that some thought...
