You've landed in the archive of the Cambrian House community. We've kept some pages here for posterity but the community is no longer active. Now we market the technology that made our early crowdsourcing a success.
Can we help you get to Cambrian House the company? – Come on over.

Just like SETI@home, or Einstein@home where users download data to process while their computer is idle. In this model, users are paid to use the client, automatically download a set of work and process it while their computer is idle. The company sells the distributed processing power to companies needing large tasks completed with better throughput. It could possibly be extended for users to seed a torrent for companies who need to distribute content. Essentially, paying users for their idle CPU time and selling the collective CPU time to whoever needs it. A customer would implement an data processing object to an interface which we define. They submit the object along with their data set via FTP. Our system recognizes the submission and queues it into the grid. Our system uses the grid to processes the work, organizes the results, performs various error checks, packages the result and makes it available to the computer via FTP. All automated. CPU cycles on demand - and make it cheap
Thought about this back when I was an active SETI@home user - they created a supercomputer out of a network of idle computers. I thought that it was pure genius. I found that enthusiasm waned over time with the projects and thought that a revenue model might alleviate that problem.
