Hi all,

I am impressed by the diversity of team names that are out there. I was wondering what some of them mean or how they came about, maybe some of their history with distributed computing or other online initiatives. Would any founders of the top teams like to comment?

Everyone could pipe in on their vote for 'coolest' team name/purpose/philosophy... ;-)

Hi, I member of Ad Astra With SETI.
This name means: To the stars with SETI !

We are a german group of sience(-fiction)-interested people. The main idea we believe at, is, that most of sience-related fiction becomes reality! Try together with us to find an answer of the question: "Is there any intelligence life on earth?"


If you like you can join our team here!

The whole is more then the sum of its particles.
Best wishes from Berlin(52°35'N,13°23'O), Basti

My group is Project Blue Book .. just randomly chosen at the spur of the moment.. Happens that a co-founder and I are both sons of U.S. Air Force parents .. so it fit.

Almost went with "White Noise Analysis" .. yo! there is one of those!

We've been a team since Sept 1999 .. so we're hitting five years!!

The Final Front Ear....

In a galaxy far away...

Originally know as C.L.I.T.O.R.I.S.* our merry band was born out of a late night conversation, more than a few sherbets and a dare. So *The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms Into Society was born. The name itself was taken from an episode of Red Dwarf.

So...the name change...

I suppose we realised that if the team was to grow we needed to have a more "mature name". There were other reasons, to find out more visit our website. The name might have changed, but the humour hasn't!


Remember...Always look on the bright side of life.....
