December 6th, 2010: Down at the bottom of this page I link to our World Community Grid page, where a bunch of us use our computer's spare time to work on humanitarian computing (curing cancer, AIDS, etc) - you can sign up here. I mentioned this a lot earlier this year when we became the sixth-largest team on the network, beating out IBM, Slashdot, the entire nation of France, etc! I'm mentioning it again now because, yesterday, our "total work done" number rolled over: together we've done over 1000 years of science. I feel compelled to note that "1000 years of science" is both a great milestone AND a great band name. Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us! One year ago today: guys i think i made myself sad for bacteria with the phrase "those tiny lives" – Ryan
