Can you explain here what it is you are attempting to accomplish aside from linking us to your website please?

It would be nice if you articulated what it is you are after.....


Me? Avaaz is not my website. It is just a site for petitions. I made a petition to make funding science easier, but it seems to be difficult to get thousands of names.

Thanks for all the support!

To quote"

When I was a kid in the late 1980s and early 1990s I expected to see humans on Mars and Moon in the early 2000s. I expected to see cheap supersonic flights around the world, spaceflights for ordinary people, and big and powerful particle accelerators. After getting my Master's degree in physics I started to realize that there is no proper funding even for the cheapest projects. Lots of skills and brain power gets lost because there are no enough jobs available for everyone. Big science projects would bring lots of news jobs and innovations. We need new innovations to solve the problems of everyday life (water, energy, poverty, food, education, health). Big science projects will solve these problems, but not without proper funding. The purpose of this petition is to make almost unlimited funding for science possible.

Nice idea...


Never engage stupid people at their level, they then have the home court advantage.....

Thanks!

I made this BOINC project, Bitcoin Utopia, to help crowdfunding science. Here is the main site for Bitcoin Utopia.

Yeah! Big science projects will be an economic boost like the Apollo project lead directly to the micro-computer, oops nowadays we call it the PC boom.


All computers idle at the same speed.
