Interviewing an Established Member of the FAH Community

Postby ringmaster » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:18 am

If there is a better place to post this, let me know. I figured that since it is the Q&A section, it would be appropriate.

I am a college student that is working on a civic engagement project, and I have decided to choose Folding@home as my topic of discussion. For my project, in order to gain a better understanding of folding, its importance, challenges, and other information, I would like to interview someone who has experience and is a long-standing member of the folding community. The questions are fairly general, and it would not take long - just a quick online chat.

If anyone is would be willing to do this, please let me know, and thank you!

Be sure and read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folding@home
I think it's a pretty good description.

Or post your questions here and we all can answer them (But this could lead to more discussions).

More discussion is appropriate.

e.g.- the wikipedia article needs some updates on topics such as the FAH Consortium.

When somebody says some other person is "young" you really have to know how old the speaker is. Use of that word depends on your own perspective.

I'd call FAH "middle-aged" since it had already done quite a bit of maturing when that article was written -- but I won't argue with your perspective.
:D.

You might consider updating some sections of that article.

Not sure how to update some sections & that would be more accurate, by those with greater knowledge of FAH than myself.

I can safely say the world & nature is not "Static" or stays the same, over time we evolve & things get 'better, or smarter' (autos got better, computers got better, man became smarter etc), also evolving & becoming better, since 2002 NYT article, (compared to earlier years), is FAH.

Both articles I consider an introduction to, or a jumping in point for the reader, who would/could seek further info, so as to compare 2002 FAH to 2019FAH. The progression/advancement to me is understood, or a known known :D
