Besides fighting Alzheimer's and all kinds of cognitive impairment, we're opening up a second front in the college world with College Brain.
It's a little competition between people at colleges and between colleges to see who (and which institution) have the fastest brains. The larger purpose is to collect in real-time whatever ideas people have for an improved world --taking us one step closer to a global brain. Let's hope that the extra neurons made possible are put to good use. If you don't see your college on the list (and we provincially started out with just the U.S.) then you can submit your college, university, or institution.
We flicked the switch on the database and started signing up people within seconds.
The first person is right here:
Visit Start Time 8/26/2006 8:40:59 PM
Location San José, 08, Costa Rica
Organization Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad y Telecom.
You see, the first participant was not technically in the U.S., that's why adding to the list - wherever you are in the world, is so important
