Reverse-Cloud: Distributed Computing Service Provider

Sadly, these days I am not surprised that no one takes security seriously. No password protection? Sure! Saves time logging in, right?

I am however surprised that companies don't reverse-cloud with a distributed-computing client installed on every PC in their network in order to sell the processing power of unused cycles to world+dog. (After all, no one cares about security anymore, so why not...)

Sadly, I can even see companies running a reverse-cloud (on all of their PCs that were turned into thin clients when they moved all of their corporate systems to the cloud) in order to help pay for their cloud services.

And then complaining about how their voip phones all suck, oblivious to their networks not being able to handle the load of cloud + reverse-cloud + voip.
