Connection, Consciousness, Wisdom



This website is the open notebook of Elliott Collin Ploutz. I am a philosopher, computer scientist, YouTuber, and aspiring influencer. These pages are my public notes on various topics I investigate. If you’re interested in living a good life, optimizing productivity, philosophy, computer science, artificial intelligence, and making sense of this absurd universe we live in, I hope something on this site saves you time and energy.

I’m interested in alternative social media that combats the problems we face (book) today. Follow me on Fosstodon, a free and opensource platform.

Hey! Give me money.

If you send me money, I promise it will probably go to important uses like funding my projects, charities, or my extravagant lifestyle.
