There are many distributed computing protocols in existence today. Some serve as a solution for scientific computing, some as a middleware solution to large- scale systems engineering, and others as an “easy-to-use” service solution on the Web. What most of these protocols have in common is that they require a strong “handshake” between the machines utilizing each other’s resources. This coupling has rendered many distributed protocols to only be useful for a collection of machines owned and operated by a single organization (e.g. MPI/PVM computing) or for use by foreign machines with a very specific use case (e.g. RPC/Web Services computing). The former allows for general-purpose distributed computing and the latter allows for Internet-scale distributed computing. What if both types of functionality were to be merged? What does a general-purpose, Internet-scale distributed computing protocol look like? Linked Process [ http://linkedprocess.org ]
