Organizations of restricted generality (ORGs) provide foundations for the development of more scalable, robust, and privacy-friendly Internet applications by incorporating multicore cloud computing into the client (desktops, entertainment centers, table computers, notebooks, wall computers, handhelds, and so forth).
