World Community Grid - What are your Thoughts?

Last week I talked about the satisfaction obtained by joining Distributed Computing projects that borrow your computer's help to solve computationally-massive problems.  I also put up a new page on the site devoted strictly to Distributed Computing projects so they can all be accessed in one place.

Since then I've also been looking some more projects from the World Community Grid.  Initiated by IBM, partner organizations team up to utilize the network's volunteers for public health, disease, and alternative energy research.  They have already completed a number of initial projects and continue to grow with the following (still active projects). 
I will have more on these in a few days, but for the time being check 'em out and let me know what you think. I'd love to include your thoughts in the next big posting!
