The Communist Computer Concept
From time to time I have some interesting ideas, but usually they get lost. Thanks to the magic of blogging, this one will get documented. Computers on a network can often share folders, meaning that people can use other peoples hard drives to good use. Well, what if all computer's resources could be shared? Imaging that all computers in the world would be connected. All the processor speeds, all the RAM all the resources would be shared equally throughout all the active computers. Whenever a user logs off, their computer power can be used by someone else. All old computers would be put to good use. Wouldn't this be awesome? Everyone would basically have their own super computer, and universities can pay people to log off at the same time, and use the insane power to make complex calculations. Probably impossible but cool idea, no?
