Grid computing has either reached a tipping point or jumped the shark; someone has written a grid computing video game.
Ok, I'm being a little facetious--the appearance of one flash-based diversion isn't a harbinger of doom or of success. It's just a fun way to spend 2 minutes.
TryScience.org has the game. In it, you control the world's computer grid, and you have to prioritize the grid as it solves different scientific problems. It's different than the type of grid computing that I usually write about (I'm much more interested in companies using their own machines together), but it's worth looking at.
