I saw your article in RSS feeds. I try to do whatever I can to boost BOINC projects with my blog. So I did a small post which goes out to about 1,000 readers.

Of late, my ScienceSprings blog has been tilting heavily toward Astronomy. This is because of the availability of both American (NASA) and European (ESO, ESA) material at Twitter, Facebook and Google+, web sites.

There are great graphics, many many links back to original and explanatory material.

If you like, you can follow the blog or the Twitter feed for items of interest.

I saw the \"desktops\", how about a screen saver. They are great calling cards when we try to get our co-workers to become crunchers.

We need a screen saver. It helps us in recruiting when non-crunchers come past our desks.

Screen savers are a great calling card.

Now that I am attached to this project, I think it is fair of memto ask:

How did this Chicago Trib guy who did the article which described this project and crunching in general not have the brains to mention BOINC, without which, you know, nothing?

And, how is it that no one got to him to get BOINC mentioned?

>>RSM



Wasn\'t for lack of saying BOINC at least 20-30 times during the interview ;)


Thanks for your reply. I even emailed the guy, and he never replied. I have been taking it as personal project to try to get articles written in the computer press about BOINC and WCG. I have been singularly unsuccessful. So, you know, when I see an article like this one, it just set me off.

I am glad to be on your project. I still watch the 1985 Public Television piece \"Creation of the Universe\",by Timothy Ferris.

Please advise.
