So at the request of Engadget readers (or listeners,
as it were) who overheard our otherwise waylayed grand plan of storming Stanford's
Folding@home project, we're officially announcing the Team Engadget
Folding@home, uh, team.
What is Folding@home? Well, in a nutshell you can donate your processor's spare cycles (when it's not computing for you, that is) to the incredibly complex study of protein folding; possible uses for the data including curing many forms of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, and all sorts of other diseases.
