World Community Grid

The other day Alan Leposky blogged about the World Community Grid. This is a Grid Computing system that used the idle time on your computer to do research on various different research projects. As your computer is processing data it keeps a score and you can track how much data your computer processes.

One thing that you can do is create a ‘team’ so that you and others can collect a community score. There are already teams within IBM that are working together and competing with each other. The IBM Workplace team seems to be the biggest and best and a Lotus Support team seems to have been setup in the last few days.

I have created a ‘Lotus Domino Bloggers’ team that you can join so why not download the Grid Agent today and see if we can catch up on a few of those IBMers. Once you download and install the agent just log into the website and check out the ‘My Teams’ section on the left hand side and do a serach for the team name.

Look forward to seeing a few people joining.

    I have joined, and have two laptops and a desktop running it. I may put it on a couple of other boxes as well…I also joined the Lotus Bloggers group.Rock

    I have also joined and hooked up with the team.

    I will be adding a couple of other boxes and maybe a powerful 4-way development server that is sitting idle right now.

    I just joined.A little late, I guess. You might want to change the team home page to this specific posting rather than to the top of your blog.
