Initially, this project began as a dare. How many people can you convince to entrust you with their conventional computers, bring them to a common location to build a supercomputer that can compete with the fastest and most expensive computers in the world? A simple dare amongst a few individuals had now grown into a platform that would enable a large group of people to gather computing powers with the aim of solving a key scientific problem that interests every one of them. Their primary objective was to prove that building a temporary and inexpensive supercomputer that is accessible to the public was indeed possible. The supercomputer would be made up of other ordinary computers and would be developed with the aim of solving a particular problem. Hence, the need for the experiment that was about to go down. Subsequently, the first computing flash mob event was set for the third of April,2004 at the University of San Francisco, dubbed – FlashMob
