My sincere condolences to the Richard Lubrich family.

His interactions with me over the years is one of the reasons I research citizen science communities and technology today. He will be missed and remembered.

Yes, I received the letter. Though in prior years there was a proposed budget with projects and tasks included in the ask. Is there any such document for this year/fundraiser?

I made my first ever monetary donation to SETI@home already but I am still interested seeing the projects and expenses planned for the upcoming year.

Hi parafa,

I know the people that run GridRepublic and been helping them on and off for 3 years and if you ask they will comply with your request for removing. There are many things in the design of GridRepublic that could be improved and a revamp of the website is underway, but taking longer than expected. I am not sure if it fixes the disclosing the password though.

I just wanted to assure you that GridRepublic's intentions are good and you can trust the information is in good hands.

I believe somewhere there was a discussion of integrating OAuth and OpenID into BOINC, but cant remember where/when it was mentioned. It would help with the linking issue somewhat.

This account manager just released its community features which there already is an outline for content, but GridRepublic needs help of the BOINC community to help fill it out as they spend their time and effort continuing development and refinement of the site and beginning public outreach and partnerships to provide awareness for volunteer computing as a whole.

If you would like to work on outreach too the communities feature has an advocacy section where you can post and share discussions and files.

Also if you are a skilled web programmer, designer, or just interested in other ways you can help check out the developer section under the new community features added on October 24, 2008. They are a big step forward and we look forward to more improvements and strides in public awareness.
