It has been a long time, more than 7 years, since we started with the DENIS@home
project. It has also been a long time since the project was running stably for a long period of time. But we're here again, and we still need you! Today we want to start over. Are you in?
Thanks for being there
First of all, thank you. Thanks to all of you who are on the other side of the screen. Those who arrived on the first day and those who have just joined the project. Those who have asked us, those who have remembered us, and those of you who wanted the project to be working again.
You have always been the engine of this project and we know you will continue to be. Thank you!
What can you expect from DENIS@home in this new stage?
We have simplified and updated the web, we want to add more things, but we will go little by little. We come with new projects
, we will also continue with the old ones. The team
has also grown a bit.
We have a thousand ideas in the pipeline, so we wouldn't have time to carry many of them all out, but the most important one: we want to communicate better. You have opened a small window for us and, there would be so many things to explain about our research! Let's make the effort!
Today, we are inaugurating this medium to be a way of explaining the science behind our research. Sometimes we will explain be very basic things. Others we will venture to tell more complicated things. Science must be shared, especially to you who are part of our project.
We started the project in English to be international, but we have seen the great value of promoting our language (Spanish) as well. Our community, our people, is enriched by the project. You will have already noticed, now everything goes in both languages. Don't be afraid to use both on forums (even others!). Let's remove barriers.
What is your role in this new stage?
We do not have a clear answer to this question. What role do you want to have in this project? In these years you have shown us that one of the greatest things of this project is the community of volunteers who are behind and promote us. We want to give you a bigger role than just letting us use your computer. We need you to go further. We know that you have a lot to contribute, so we want to leave the question in your hands: What role do you want to have in this project?
Help us spreading DENIS@home
We have a lot to do, a lot to change and a lot to investigate. Can you help us get more people to join? Our best prescribers are you; you always have been. If you like this project, tell it, share it, spread it. We are in the social networks, and we like to know about you and let the world knows about all of us.
There would be a thousand more things to tell you... so this will not be our last e-mail.
Welcome to this new stage, shall we begin?
All the best,
