Hello all. Hope all is well on your side of the display screen.
I guess the basics, w/ brief forshadowing, and oddly comedic reasoning why I think “IOHK leads the way”

Originally got into crypto for the idea of profit. So I didn’t really know how to actually join in and participate.
Then I found out what the Cardano Project is, about, and building into.
I’m still a beginner, but am always good for thoughts and comments.
(Details and 4th wall breaking)
Not to sound sappy, or overly goofy, but learning about Cardano and all it’s little different intricacies have actually played a significant role in my never ending quest at trying to be a better me, grow my knowledge of things in general. All while I try to figure out what my Magnum Opus will eventually be.
I was in the Army but then was medically retired (Honorably) due to situations I experienced while deployed to Iraq. (Anxiety, Depression, PTSD. AKA a form of shell shock as it was called yeae ago.). That being said, reading about, watching videos and streams, and now even attempting to learn coding just so I can be able to have the chance to be able to participate in Cardano in any way actually brings a smile to my ugly mug. Some people smile when they think of chocolate, puppies, or the beach. I smile when I think of Cardano, IOHK, Haskell, Plutus, and Marlowe.
It really is a joy seeing everything associated grow and ripen as it has done so far.
Ok, enough of that.
(Don’t want to appear weird now.)
Besides learning a computer language, I am actually trying to figure out how to share this next thought to people associated with the VA ,even my Congressman actually.
i figured this community is actually the best place to get information and suggestions how to present it…
I’d really like to see the Veterans Affairs Dept utilize blockchain tech (Specifically, Ms. Lovelace’s associated platform) for their record keeping and communication between the healthcare side and the business side. Hundreds of Veterans here in the states get lost and forgotten about or just give up because of the miscommunication, missing data, and errors in record keeping.
I really think Cardano somehow, someway, can help veterans get there healthcare and disability compensation, and make the VA itself efficient, and just be a better resource for vets. New and old.
Recently saw the new Symphony video released. Was kind of in awe. That gave me ideas on the possibilities of branching out to A.R./VR even possibly leading up to a game like, The Oasis. In the film, Ready Player One. Well, kind of.
Needless to say, thinking about what can be done with the a tech that is being built excited me and makes me want to participate. Even though my studies we’re more focused on History and Political Theory, and I am still in the beginning levels of a novice. Even the thought and of the inevitable dry itchy eyes, possible expletives from learning Haskell, and meme worthy frustrating. Cardano makes my heart smile, and is just fricken cool.
So that’s my brief (my version of brief) intro of myself.
For real though, The Cardano Platform, and IOHK is something I am a fan/supporter of.
Thanks for creating something that gets me as excited as I used to get with Legos durring my days as an anadolescent-teen.
The Cardano Effect is awesome. Seeing it grow, and become more refined with each new episode is the daggone “bee’s knees”
(Whew and egads)
