About me:

I trained as a historian and now work in a public policy research organization. I have essentially no scientific background, but I enjoy strategy games like go, chess, and mah-jongg. I encourage everyone to sign up and contribute to the Fold It Wiki.

ShannonB:  Well think of it not as winning but helping science.
Diderot:  I think of it as inflicting physical pain on people smaller and weaker than I am.  That's what keeps me folding.

Group: There Will Be Cake
