Foldit September Media Wrapup
We're at the end of September, and Foldit's been name-checked and featured in a fair number of places. Due to circumstances, I felt this great roundup post would help you find everything in an efficient fashion, as well as give a reason to re-announce what's coming up.
Coming up! Our next Science Chat on October 16, followed by a Developer Chat in December.
What's back: Our Demographic Survey 2014, new and improved. Help us collect those sweet stats, and please point all your group members towards it, because we lost everything (survey wise, that is). Combined with our recent puzzle survey, we are committed to helping drive our mission for great science side by side with good game fun, so please do take a minute or two to assist.
From the news side of thing, let's take a scroll back through September!
* The Guardian asks, "Could a game change your bad habits?"
* C&EN's Virtual Symposium 2014: Advances in Drug Discovery and Development featured Dr. David Baker's talk on "Design of Protein Structures, Functions and Assemblies". You have to register, but the streaming talk is free to listen for the next couple months.
* Seattle Times pointed out our role in Ebola research in "From donors to research, state has key role in Ebola fight".
* Scientific American magazine wrote an article titled "Citizen Science Is Stimulating a Wealth of Innovative Projects" and we're in there.
* We led this list in a sci-tech feature on crowd-sourced computing via the student newspaper at McGill University called "Harnessing the world's computational power".
* Al Jazeera America's video asks "Can Ebola video game help find cure for the deadly virus?"
* We were also part of the NSF's "Throwback Thursday" quiz in early September.
