Fall quarter is under way, and the office here is humming with activity – we can’t discuss all of it yet, but we have some exciting new projects in the works. Until then, we can check in on our current projects and give you an update on where we’ll be next.
Foldit continues to lead the way in crowdsourcing mentions, with mentions and write-ups recently by Scinexx (German science magazine), Huffington Post, and the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies. In case you missed it on Twitter, Foldit is also giving followers a sneak peek behind the scenes every Friday until the end of the quarter. We’re doing this by sharing pictures in the lab taken by one of our scientists. In Nanocrafter news, we’re fixing some of our most interesting bugs and reintroducing early challenges for the community to see how effective our changes have been. If you haven’t been by lately – give Nanocrafter a look!
Coming up, these fresh events for your calendar!
