Just out of curiosity. Are there any famous people known to be endorsing BOINC or any distributed computing initiatives?

In the UK, Nick Palmer who is the Labour Member of Parliament for Broxtowe joined the BBC/CPDN Climate Change Experiment and ran a 160-year climate model to completion. This of course took many months on his home computer. He also posted on the BBC project forum.

(Not sure whether MPs count as celebrities!)

I know of one major celebrity that was 3 or 4 years ago but I don't think he is anymore. Privacy concerns.
