About

My name is Saulius Šimčikas. I was born in 1988. I grew up in Lithuania. I used to work as programmer. I also used to be very passionate about effective altruism, donate nearly a third of my income to charities, regularly discuss issues like charity evaluation, artificial intelligence safety, wild animal suffering. I still think about these things a lot but I am not that person anymore. I don’t know what I am now, I’m trying to figure it out. Actually, I had many different personalities in my life, I even used to make it a game to have a different persona with each group of people. I just chose to talk about the altruistic one because it’s the most recent one and I still feel like I should promote effective altruism every chance I get because that might make the world a better place. I feel like a salesman sometimes, I should probably stop doing that. Anyway, that’s me. Oh, and I don’t know what this blog will be about because I don’t know what I’ll be about 🙂
