One part that resonated with me the most was near the start when Oppenheimer and associates were complaining about the lack of impact of their theoretical research, despite the urgency of current affairs -- unfortunately in my case, not sure if type theory or proofs will ever be impactful beyond influencing the lives of white collar workers... 😞

Saw Oppenheimer tonight --- it was a decent movie, 6/10; Thanks Cell for inviting!

Fair point, I guess I was true to character then! 😎

But overall, pretty great movie! Enjoyed it all the way through, lots of laughs, good story, solid 8/10!

Always end up looking quite stiff in these photos!!!

but what do you do when there's nothing left to delete?

end of the world in 2012 again?

Proper representation in media and pop culture can also have a big impact as well! Looking back in retrospect, a major thing that got me interested in science and mathematics as a child was watching "Short Circuit 2" with the Indian scientist main character Ben, which was the first time I saw someone who looked like me being represented as cool and something to look up to (though in hindsight, maybe not the best example of representation, seeing as it was actually just a white guy in brown face :( ...). My sister has a lot of self doubt about her skills and capabilities, and I can't help but wonder if this might also have been a factor... :(
