CNET ARTICLE: "Save the world using your PC or phone"

There seems to be A LOT OF MISINFORMATION / BOGUS postings on CNet's Facebook posting https://www.facebook.com/cnet/posts/10153599739847275 where I originally saw the article link. The usual type of "idiots" are saying how BOINC is used for bot nets and such garbage. Maybe we can get some more BOINC users to "slay" the B.S. by posting FACTUAL INFORMATION.

Nice. Seti got a lot of coverage this week too thanks to the big announcement. There has been a big spike in new volunteers for that project which highlights the importance of working for more media coverage of volunteer computing in general and the individual projects.
