Big article on Science games and distributed computing in this week's New Scientist (8th Nov 08, pg 36-39, http://www.newscientist.com/channel/being-human/mg20026811.700-how-online-games-are-solving-uncomputable-problems.html). Couldn't see it anywhere, sorry if its been mentioned already.
Aside from bringing fame to Cheese hehe, its got a couple of interesting paragraphs on the future of Foldit:
Some stuff about CASP for which it says "Initial analysis of results from Foldit are very promising".
Then Zoran Popovic says "We've already seen solutions from these volunteers that are very competitive to massive computational efforts, and at times even outperform them. I expect people to do much better once we refine the tools to better fit the gameplay and human puzzle-solving process".
Then another paragraph which says that starting from this month Foldit will be expanded with a new protein design game to create synthetic proteins, and in December puzzles for growing and moulding sythetic proteins that bind specifically to a virus will go live.
