    Hey Guys,

    I saw this and thought some other TPU people would be interested.

    The article talks about a project called World Community Grid. They use distributed computing similar to Folding@home, but their focus is on doing research on developing more nutritious and robust rice crops to help feed hungry people around the world.

    They also work on finding solutions to cancer, AIDS, and a few other things.

    I registered and started working on the rice program, if others are interested maybe we could start a TPU team?
