demystification is always good. IMO, the best part of this is that
it'll actually demonstrate why a flash mob *CAN'T* build a supercomputer.
partly the reason is hetrogeneity and other "practical" downers.
but mainly, a super-computer needs a super-network.
of course, in the grid nirvana,
all computers would have multiple ports of infiniband,
and the word would be 5 us across ;)
