I would be one of those players. I had never heard about your site and game until I picked up the latest issue of Wired!

Sounds awesome, can't wait to start playing!

I did undergraduate research and participated in CASP and loved it. A friend emailed me the Wired article and I was enthralled. Hello Folders!

My apologies to Cat Stevens and Harry Chapin

"Cat's in the Cradle" - foldit style

My "Wired" arrived just the other day
It came in the mail in the usual way
They made science a game, an article did say
Proteins to fold, try it today
And I was foldin' 'fore I knew it, my knowledge grew
I said, "I'm gonna fold like you, guys
You know I'm fold like you"

With a shake and wiggle and my first scores grew
It sounded really hard, but that's not true
When I'm going stop?
I don't know when, but we'll be evolvers then, yeah
You know we'll be evolvers then

Intro puzzle ten, I checked it out.
It said, "Orange goes in and the blue goes out"
"Can you teach me to tweak?", it said, "Right away"
"Right click the helix, you'll be on your way"
As I tried it, my smile never dimmed
I said, "I'm gonna make it spin, yeah
You know I'm gonna make it spin."

And the sheets getting closer and bonds form true
Clashes show up as red, not blue
When's the tutorial over?
I don't know when, but I'll be ready then, yeah
You know I'll be ready by then.

The article is where I first heard about this game as well.
