'supercomputing dates from WWII'? Did I miss a world war somewhere?
There were massed arrays of computers then, but they ate lunch and slept
at night, operated mechanical calculators and later got fired when
computers of the automatic, digital, electronic type actually came into

flashmobcomputing seems very 1997. Note that out of all the FAQ data,
there's no mention of what they intend to *accomplish*.
