Fog computing

eWeek: Cloud Computing
Meanwhile, Anderson discussed a project he is working on that he calls "fog computing," which attempts to tap the unused power of private PCs and devices owned by people around the world. The goal is to use the underused computing power as a resource pool to tap for scientific research, Anderson said. Already "about 1 million computers are volunteering" in the effort, he said.

We may have to give up all those jokes about vapor ware.

Dear Alice,
did you talk about the David Anderson project FOG?
Could you give me more reference, please?
I am really interested in the topic, we made a similar work and we don't found any reference.
Many thanks and best regards,
Salvatore.
