Rarely does a news story cause me to exclaim out loud, but this one did. It seems that the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego is coordinating an effort to use 100,000 personal computers (like yours and mine) to conduct research on HIV medications when the owner is not using them. According to the Institute's press release, the project is sponsored by IBM, is called "FightAIDS@Home," and anyone can sign on at http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ to be part of the World Community Grid.
