Interesting paper.

I wonder why they didn’t include Einstein@home, despite saying they included “SETI@home and the next nine largest projects on BOINC)”. I always thought Einstein@home was something like the 2nd largest project after SETI@home?

Also they say “Analyzing (or crowdsourcing) rose a decade later, at the end of the 2000s, carried by the launch of Galaxy Zoo in 2007”, however Stardust@home actually came before it (2006).
