      There's an article in New Scientist that might interest some:

      http://www.newscientist.com/news/print.jsp?id=ns99993335

      "Distributed computing may finally become a useful tool in complex
      problem solving thanks to research in the US that appears to overcome
      its biggest drawback - how to distribute the problem in the first
      place...
      ...there exists a fundamental difficulty with coordinating the efforts
      of all computers involved. The more processors there are, the more
      time and memory is needed just to keep track of the data...
      ...However, Korniss and his colleagues have now come up with a simple
      solution that removes the need to have a global supervisor. Each
      individual computer makes occasional checks with randomly-chosen
      others, to ensure it is properly synchronised..."
