I might not be understanding this correctly but if this "Other group" were a bunch of government super computers (or enough of the "Other" group was in order to constitute a 51% of the network) could they fork the chain or whatever and corrupt Bitcoin?  Am I not understanding that correctly?  Is it just the client and not the miners that process and verify the transactions?

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

Your chart is missing btcguild.com. They have 1.5 TH/s.

That pie chart looks ancient!  Shocked

Other is just the solo miners.

The pooled miners work for the single client that belongs to the pool operator.
