The World Community Grid

“Help power cutting-edge research in health, poverty and sustainability”

Use your CPU cycles to help solve big issues facing humanity like Ebola, mosquito-born diseases and poverty. Since 2004, IBM has provided software for Windows, Linux, Mac OSX and Android which uses your spare CPU cycles to crunch scientific data for research projects looking for cures to the ailments that effect us all.

Some of the progress made so far includes the discovery of compounds effective against neuroblastoma, drugs to fight malaria, tuberculosis, Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus and HIV.

I have been a technology expert since 1984. My aim is to help my local community with technology issues and have some fun blogging. I expect I will learn a great deal over the next few years about blogging and web content. It's always good to keep learning.
