National Geographic & IBM team up on the Genographic Project

This project looks really cool. The IBM project manager presented this project at Supernova 2005 today and I thought it worthwhile passing on for others to be aware of it. It's a project where they're trying to map DNA from people all over the world in order to better understand the human race including linguisitic, migratory, race, and many other issues.
Individuals can participate on an anonymous basis as well. If you get a chance, check out the Web site at:
