    Distributed computing is a field of computer science that studies distributed systems. A distributed system consists of multiple computers that communicate through a computer network. The computers interact with each other in order to achieve a common goal. A computer program that runs in a distributed system is called a distributed program, and distributed programming is the process of writing such programs.

    Here one sample:

    http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=osstats2

    340'000 active CPU, 640'000 active Cores, connected via Internet

    I guess we can call that multiple computer and quite distributed; fits the definition.

    As for the common goal: we (Team: 3446) want to reach 1bn Points; mind joining ? :D
    It's quite fun to "chase other" with respect to points and I also learned something about the science behind. Very interesting, those little proteins ...
