  In this paper, we have shown how volunteer computing brings potential benefits, but also involves many challenging problems. There is plenty of space in this field for exploration, and indeed many have already started [16,18,24,28,31,32,43]. Project Bayanihan joins these efforts with a different approach: since the perfect approach is not clear, we do not settle on a single one, but instead take advantage of remote object technology to build a flexible framework that we hope would allow us to try any approach. Work on Project Bayanihan is ongoing, but preliminary results give us a positive outlook and hope for success.
