How All This Started
As a child, Jeffrey Poche was sold dreams of flying cars, sarcastic robot maids, and paranoid androids. None of this having come to fruition, Jeffrey somewhat randomly found his way into an operations role where he could put his English Literature degree to good use.
One day while walking through a field, Jeffrey was listening to a podcast from the folks at 80,000 Hours. At the beginning of each episode, they ask the guest, "what are you working on, and why do you think it is important?" And Jeffrey had an epiphany, “what if someone were to ask me that?” He realized his answer would be pretty lame. So he decided to make a change. Over the next year and a half, he transitioned into using his operations skills, knowledge, and passion toward helping organizations in the Effective Altruism community. Through the course of that year and a half Anti Entropy was born.
Note: He was also promised genetic engineering would bring back the woolly mammoth, which made Jeffrey very excited at the prospect of fulfilling a lifelong dream of yelling at a woolly mammoth to get off of his lawn. And yet, no woolly mammoth.
