Earth-Sized Super-Computer

This has nothing to do with voice acting or creative services, but it deserves a blog entry as much as any other topic.  Medical and Scientific research requires a lot of computing power; super-powerful and super-expensive “Super-Computers”.  The cost of using super-computers is just one of the factors that makes research so expensive, but some super-genius type folks at MIT have come up with a way to create what amounts to an Earth-Size Super-Computer.

The World Community Grid allows computer owners like you and I to lend our computer’s unused or “idle” processing power to researchers.  My laptop, right now as I type, is working on a possible cure for AIDS.  There are currently over 600,000 users worldwide, providing computing power for research.  Please consider getting involved (click the link below)

“World Community Grid brings together people from across the globe to benefit humanity by creating the world’s largest non-profit computing grid. We do this by pooling surplus processing power from volunteers’ devices. We believe that innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can help make the planet smarter. Our success depends on like-minded individuals – like you.”
