Working together, volunteer computing

Our world is interconnected, we know this to be true, we also know that science and technology are the roads we must take for a better future, this makes me think, how could I, a man not so evolved in the fields of science, help the seeds to become trees. The answer is volunteer computing, or to be more precise, BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing). By joining this community you offer your computing resources to science. The idea is simple, for research and simulation, computers are needed, the world has a lot of such devices, so why not link them together by use of the Internet and let them share the burden of calculating stuff. The fields of research range from physics, space (ex: seti), medicine, genetics, mathematics, etc. Chose one or more projects that you want to support and make a difference.
