Just got an email from WCG that you might be interested in:
The first-ever man vs. machine Jeopardy! competition will air next week. The contest is between two of the most celebrated Jeopardy! Champions -- Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings -- playing against IBM's 'Watson' computing system. The grand prize for this competition will be $1 million, with second place earning $300,000, and third place earning $200,000.

IBM will be donating 100% of 'Watson's' winnings to charity, with 50% of those winnings going to World Vision and 50% going to World Community Grid!

To read the full article and access the press release, please go to the News & Updates article.

In advance of the Jeopardy! special, the USA based Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) will be showing a NOVA segment on February 9, 2011, entitled Smartest Machine on Earth. For more information about this NOVA special please click here.

If you are unfamiliar with the Jeopardy! game show, please go to the Jeopardy! website. This site also provides you with a chance to vote for your favorite contestant. There is also information on Facebook.

Please tune in to watch this special competition, and cheer 'Watson' on! It will be airing over three days -- February 14, 15, and 16, 2011. Please check your local listings for channel and air times.

Jerry Doyle plugs 'World Community Grid'

I'm currently listening to the podcast of The Jerry Doyle Show from 2-16-11
Starting at time point 38:42 he and his broadcast associate jabber about what WCG is. It's kind of neat especially considering the show reaches over 4 million people.

They didn't mention BIONC though, saying people have to download a manager program- and smack on them for not giving a web address.

May be of interest.
Dear Gavin Shaw,

Help Conquer Cancer project wrap-up webcast!

Since November 2007, World Community Grid volunteers have been helping researchers from the Ontario Cancer Institute develop tools to identify, analyze and treat cancer. As this project wraps up, you'll have the chance to join a live webcast on May 29th to hear directly from the Help Conquer Cancer researchers and find out how the results are being used.

The webcast will begin at 12:00pm Eastern Time (16:00 UTC). Please join a few minutes early to give yourself time to log in.

You may check if your browser can support the live webcast here.

You may access the live webcast on May 29th here.

We hope you can join the webcast - this is a perfect way to commemorate National Cancer Research Month and a rare opportunity to hear first-hand about some of the potential scientific advances that your contributions make possible.

Sincerely,

The World Community Grid Team
