    That actually looks like something that would be a welcome distraction from work, but not a "game" for me. A few minutes here and there would be fine, but I couldn't imagine sitting down for any length of time trying to get a high score.

    I fucking loved fold.it. Haven't touched it in months, but I think it was someone on TypoC that introduced me to it. Hours and hours spent folding those little proteins.

    This is crazy. Have you ever seen this TED talk about the potential of gamers to solve the world's problems. She talks about just this sort of thing:

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
