What are the haps my friends

September 10th, 2010: Remember yesterday when I said we should beat IBM, a multinational company with huge resources, the second-most valuable global brand after Coca-Cola? SO UH, WE BEAT THEM IN LESS THAN DAY. Amazing! We're now the sixth largest team on the network. Even the World Community Grid itself has noticed our unstoppable ways!

Excellent work, everyone! I said yesterday that I'd cool it on issuing challenges for a while, but I'll just point out that to move up to number 5, we have to take down EasyNews, who has almost twice the members we do. So we're going to do this one stealthy-like. The link to join is here, and it's also beneath the comic in the "Big ups and shouts out" section.

If you're reading this, it's likely you're on a desktop or laptop computer, and that computer can help cure cancer and do all sorts of excellent humanitarian computing in its spare time. Yesterday alone we did over a year and a half's worth of such computing in a single day. Join us?

GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...


Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: i did a google search for "Walter Theodore Freemont", hoping he'd be a billionaire industrialist from centuries past, but thus far it seems no parents in history have seen it fit to give their child such a name, or at least give them the name and then tell the whole internet about it
