The Variant :: John August's new short story

The Variant :: Screenwriter and director John August is releasing his latest work as a self published short story on amazon - the first 13 pages are free, and they suck you in. August is great with new media - his blog is fantastic - and i love how he approaches this latest venture - read the whole page where he explains his thinking on the pay per download model. (It's a great story BTW)

fold it... protein folding puzzles to help our computer overlords understand us better

Foldit :: "We’re collecting data to find out if humans' pattern-recognition and puzzle-solving abilities make them more efficient than existing computer programs at pattern-folding tasks.
