This actually happened to me as well!
Both parties agreed the meeting's goals were accomplished and we continued with our EAG
I dropped out of a BSc degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering after 3 years.
This was a pivotal moment in my career, this move also pushed me into leaving Apple, and taking the tech lead role of a startup where I upskilled myself in more areas than I care to count.
Knowing what I know today, I might have taken different paths and dropped out even earlier, but hindsight is 20/20.
That being said, I do not have regrets over most of the courses I have taken, what I learned there is still beneficial in my professional life today.
Now I'm offering my engineering skills to EA aligned orgs, and looking into AI Safety.
I would include all US patent information
Nice! (fwiw I'd probably aim to keep all of them and not filter)
So far as the computers, digital content and software are concerned... this may not remain usable
We can discuss on better solutions here, though this will be a premature optimization. I'd be perfectly happy if figured we'd need to "refresh digital hardware" every 20 years or so. This seems cheaper and easier than improving SSD technology to reach an MTBF of a few centuries.
Broadly speaking I would favor print media for this reason.
The intention is to do both, and optimistically the digital media survives and the situation will be vastly more positive than print only.
Yeah, saving humanity from [near] extinction is my Plan A.
I don't know how to change humanity's direction.
Do you think this disqualifies the project?
Following anonymous feedback that I got from this form (thank you!) here's my more professional (and meme-less) pitch:
Book this calendly if you believe I might be a good fit to your challenges.
I've been a professional engineer for 9+ years.
Some recent examples:
For more thing, you can look at my CV and my LinkedIn and also my blog (which is updated infrequently).
Direct Communication- I express my opinions about engineering in a very frank way, I do this in a constructive way in order to find solutions to the problems we have at hand. I hope to work with people who are happy with this communication style.
If you think I might be helpful to you - yes.
If not - please provide feedback on you you think is missing right here.
I might be interested :) Would you like to schedule a meeting and talk about the challenges you're facing?
