I've read that CPU mining is a waste of time. Does that also count for CPU mining as part of a larger pool?

As of right now, it's a waste. However, that 0.001 BTC you get from it might be worth something when bitcoin hits a few thousand. If you were to mine with a CPU right now and sell at the current price, then you'll be losing out. If you were to hold on to whatever you make with a CPU now and sell it in a few years, it might have been worth it.
