||The POPCORN project provides an infrastructure for globally distributed
computation over the whole internet. It provides any programmer connected
to the internet with a single huge virtual parallel computer composed of
all processors on the internet that care to participate at any given moment.
A market-based mechanism of trade in CPU time underlines the system as
to motivate processors to provide their CPU cycles for other people's computations.
During mid 1997 till mid 1998 we had an online Popcorn Market that could
be visited on the web. We are not maintaining this market anymore. You
can still access our documentation
