Note that TC Maker already has a World Community Grid team (link also in my sig). I've been participating in WCG full time since the first day. The WCG community often has competitive challenges; I don't know if there have been any solely for hacker spaces.smittex wrote:I think it would be a cool idea to make the classroom computers part of a computing cluster, of course, when they're not being used for teaching, surfing, etc.
We could generate Rainbow tables or donate the computing power to projects like SETI@home or Folding@home which benefit the scientific community. Of course, GPU's or PS3's would be better suited for this task, but if the costs (power, time) vs. benefits (recognition, philanthropy) is right, it may be something cool to play with, learn from, etc.
