Could this accidental supercomputer be just the thing for business needs?

A team of software engineering students who got together to attempt a new world record for a computational maths and chess challenge have, in the process, produced a new framework for distributed computing. The students are attending Hack Reacto r, a San Francisco-based crash software development course that seeks to teach computer programming through several weeks of complete...
