Video: Is Science Just a Game? Our Meetup with Adrien Treuille

A few weeks back, crowdsourcing pioneer and all-around swell fellow Adrien Treuille stopped by the office to talk about his experiences crowdsourcing science. Treuille is one of the creators of FoldIt and EterRNA, visual puzzle games that help scientists solve the riddles of protein and RNA folding, respectively. Here’s a video of the talk titled 10 Reasons to Crowdsource Science.

You can find Adrien on Twitter at @myelbows. We really recommend checking out the NOVA documentary on his work as well.

Want to come to our next meetup? It’s this Thursday, May 14th, when we’ll be joined by Leo Meyerovich, co-founder Graphistry, Inc., as he gives a talk called Visually Analyzing People (And Their Impostors). If you can’t make this one but find yourself in San Francisco, sign up for our meetup group to stay informed about our next get together. We talk about data and we drink beer. It’s fun.
