Hi. My real name is Manuel Nascimento. I'm a 23 year-old portuguese student of Physics Engineering, at IST (Instituto Superior Técnico - one of the country's top engineering Universities) in Lisbon Portugal.
I enjoy science in general, particularly physics, a taste that as grown since I was little. I also enjoy Science-Fiction a lot, particularly those works that deal with Humanity in a plausible future setting, as that makes us reflect about the problems of today and dream about the solutions for tomorrow, which we badly need to make our world a better place for everybody...
I like also OpenSource software and idealism, programming, video encoding, japanese language and culture, and I dream about living and working in Japan; I would at least like to try it out!
Your opinions about Rosetta@home
I think it's a great idea and I hope this project will help finding cures for diseases.
