Marius Andreiana

I'm passionate about nature, science, health, education, artificial intelligence, robotics, sci-fi and how to make it real.

I believe "work" should be only smart and creative, and done not because one needs the money, but because one is proud of the result.

We're definitely far from Star Trek's world, where "economics of the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th Century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity."
I hope we, as human race, will reach that point some day. Offering to help scientists is my small, insignificant contribution to getting there.
