World Community Grid

July 8, 2011

If you’re reading this, you’re likely on a computer. If you’re like me, you likely don’t fully utilize your computer either. So why not donate some CPU cycles and resources to the World Community Grid?

I started my own team called Austin Atheists, so sign up and join if you want, join my team if you want and or start your own team.

World Community Grid is to create the world’s largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity.

From their About page, this is a run down on how grid computing works:

Grid computing joins together many individual computers, creating a large system with massive computational power that far surpasses the power of a handful of supercomputers. Because the work is split into small pieces that can be processed simultaneously, research time is reduced from years to months. The technology is also more cost-effective, enabling better use of critical funds.

So join already and your computer can be chipping in to great causes.
