How about sponsoring a student for Google Summer of Code?

Moore's Law is finally breaking down, and so computer systems are moving toward multi-core CPUs and multithreading. The Swarm approach lends itself to this, and so we could oversee a project to adapt Swarm to multithreading or just build an all new simulator that was very lightweight and fast and really exploited all available concurrency in a model.

If a new simulator were domain-specific, it could be easier to design and optimize and make useful. Also if it was a relatively simple code base, it could be compiled for FPGAs using a compiler like Impuse C or Handel C. Some slogan like Swarm Biosimulation on a chip!

        Wonderful idea!
