Article discusses the "early days" (pre-1998) of distributed computing projects, explains the basics of how they work and how to get them to work well, describes some early successes, and considers how CPU cycles may someday become a commodity to be bought, sold or traded.
Distributed computing program for evolutionary biology.
Generates stock forecasts by application of artificial intelligence with the aid of artificial neural networks.
Screensaver program tries to find divisors of Fermat numbers.

Help this distributed computing project by donating CPU cycles to find primes of the form 121*2^N-1.
Open-source software package designed to run on end-user machines while collecting various statistics about Internet performance.
Uses PC idle time to simulate and design a particle accelerator.
Project of a postdoctoral fellow in Brian Kobilka's lab, in the Molecular and Cellular Physiology department, Stanford University running large calculations, the purpose being to modelize the conformational changes of the beta 2 adrenergic receptor and have a better understanding of its pharmacology. Runs through Mac OSX-only software called XGrid. How to install and configure the software, news about the project, and a FAQ.
Research project developing tools and middleware components to coherently share and manage data and metadata in a Grid or distributed computing environment.
