I just found a paper I wrote for the Freshman Seminar i took in 1998, Plant Genetic Engineering, where I built a model of the economics of converting palm-oil plantations in indonesia into plantations of a (hypothetical) GM palm that produced kernel oil of high energy density.

now that greentech is such a big thing, I kinda feel like a bozo for having the interest in the subject way back in '98 when nobody was talking about it, and not pursuing it myself.

i guess the big question is what am I interested in *today* that I will regret 10 years from now if I don't pursue?
