Live Example of Distributed Computing (World Community Grid)

World Community Grid’s mission is to create the largest public computing grid benefiting humanity. Our work is built on the belief that technological innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can change our world for the better. Our success depends on individuals – like us – collectively contributing their unused computer time to this not-for-profit endeavor.

I’m also contributing to this community and my computer is generating good results to help humanity. I proud to be a part of this project and will continue my services on this community.

JOTI (Jamboree On The Internet)

JOTI Logo

I attended 12th JOTI held on October 18th/19th 2008. It was a great online fun and link building for scout all around the world.

Scouts/Guides chat with each other using scoutlink IRC server, send/receive emails and Validation cards. I got 50+ validation cards from other scout groups around the world.

I successfuly represented my scout group “Pragati” and truly speaking I haven’t slept in these two nights 🙂 . That’s why I told you scouting runs in my blood 😉 . You can see our group weblog on JOTI website.

I want to participate JOTA (Jamboree On The Air) but it requires radio sets and other instruments that we do not have right now. If we are able to manage these instruments then will participate in JOTA next year.
