David Perry, founder of Shiny Entertainment, has been working on a project very similar to OnLive called Gaikai. The service is a browser-based portal that works similarly to flash-game sites like NewGrounds.com and Kongregate.com. Perry had originally planned to announce Gaikai at E3 in June, but changed it to GDC when OnLive was revealed.
Gaikai is essentially the same as OnLive, but it's on a different platform and can literally be used by anyone with a computer and a browser. To Perry, it's like comparing apples to oranges.
