A Year of Accomplisments 

World Community Grid Celebrates Its First Year
On November 16, World Community Grid celebrated its one-year anniversary — and the significant contributions to humanitarian research made possible by our volunteers.

Since its launch, more than 100,000 people from 157 countries have volunteered their unused computer time to World Community Grid, registering in excess of 170,000 PCs and laptops. This tremendous volunteer force donated more than 20,000 years of computer run time and returned nearly 19 million results — or one result every two seconds!

These contributions have made the Human Proteome Folding Project — the first project to run on World Community Grid — a great success. World Community Grid expects equally outstanding results on its new project FightAIDS@Home, which launched on November 21st.

World Community Grid is proud of our accomplishments to date and looks forward to tremendous progress in the days, months and years to come.

World Community Grid is only as powerful as our volunteer base. We thank you for contributing your unused computer time, and ask you to invite your friends and families to join this critical initiative.

World Community Grid wishes to extend special thanks to our Community Admins who work tirelessly in supporting World Community Grid. The Community Admins also are members; you know them as Samuel Clemens, Lewis Carroll, Arnold Clarke, mycrofth, RT, and stares.
