We describe Paradropper, a general-purpose global computing system based on a peer-to-peer self-organizing overlay network. In Paradropper, the peer is organized into an overlay network with "small world" characteristics, and workload is well balanced among the peers according to their workload in a decentralized manner. Particularly, it not only supports embarrassing parallel computing mode, but also allows correlativity between tasks. Moreover, the master/worker roles are extended in Paradropper, which makes it more flexible in computing environment configuration.
