Goats Int’l — Life is for Learning
  1. GOATs are learners, regardless of discipline 
  2. GOATs always strive to improve—no wasted reps
  3. GOATs are internally motivated—external validation is an unstable base
  4. GOATs play infinite games—there is no summit


A love of learning was instilled in me at an early age by my grandfather, a computer scientist and physician who pioneered computational applications in medicine—a true polymath. Here’s to Homer!

WP / 1873
From Studies in the History of the Renaissance

            Like the elements of which we are composed, the action of these forces extends beyond us; it rusts iron and ripens corn. Far out on every side of us those elements are broadcast, driven by many forces; and birth and gesture and death and the springing of violets from the grave are but a few out of ten thousand resultant combinations. That clear, perpetual outline of face and limb is but an image of ours, under which we group them - a design in a web, the actual threads of which pass out beyond it.
