The White House is staging a webcast forum on citizen science on Sept. 30. Let's make sure that BOINC, PrimeGrid, and volunteer computing are represented in this event! Please tell the White House about your experience with volunteer computing, and why it's important.

Huh... should I mention that (for me) the Folding@Home experience was terrible and Boinc is just so much better, kinda like Windows and Linux, or should I not neglect the image of our competitors... er, fellow scientists?

Jk jk, just kidding.

Still, very nice for the news. I'd almost say it's worth making a Boinc announcement, as it is of interest for the platform as well. Regardless, that's a very good thing to hear!

This is a copy of the BOINC announcement, other than my adding the words "and PrimeGrid". :)

And yes, please keep any comments about other groups positive please!

I understand how important is it to keep BOINC (as a Citizen's Science tool) development alive and support D. A. group in Berkeley, and I would like to share my personal experience. However I'm not really sure if contributions from non American organizations and/or citizens will be taken into account. Do you have hints about this?

I do not know, to be honest, but I doubt it can hurt. More information is always good to have.

I'm guessing that foreign support for an American product would indicate the product has alot of viability World Wide as opposed to just a few local people. I don't KNOW either but can't see how it could hurt. There's what something like 6 Billion people on this Earth but only 300 Million of them like in America, having a product that can reach all 6 Billion of them would be a good thing for any American business, especially one run on as small a budget as Seti has. Especially since it is about technology, not manufacturing something, Science is pretty universal, as in everyone needs and uses it.
