CPUShare: Buy and sell CPU cycles

CPUShareCPUShare is an interesting and ambitious distributed computing venture. As with most distributed computing projects, you share your computer's spare CPU cycles. With CPUShare, however, you get rewarded in "CPUCoins," which you can pay other users with to buy CPU cycles for your own projects. Moreover, you can sell your CPU cycles for real money. The project is in its infancy, and as such there's really nobody buying, but if it's able to gain some critical mass it could become an interesting new marketplace.
