List of software that have the potential to do big changes.
Foldit is an experimental video game about protein folding, developed as a collaboration between the University of Washington's departments of Computer Science and Engineering and Biochemistry (many of the same people who created Rosetta@home). The first public beta was released in May 2008. Foldit follows the games-with-a-purpose paradigm in which players, as a side effect of playing, help solve problems that computers cannot solve very well. An earlier example of this paradigm is the ESP Game (aka the Google Image Labeler).
AppDNA is a small XCode shell script which efficiently packages a Mac OS X Application's source code into the application itself.
The resulting embedded project directory is fully functional, allowing the code and resources to be examined, modified and re-built. The application is self-compiling when a Release build is performed.
It's a very large platform for me to describe easily.
Improbable company values:
We become irreplaceable by replacing ourselves. We are prepared to give up our role for someone we believe is better than us - our grand vision means there are no lack of opportunities. We always do what is most important for the business.
