Another Messenger of Death?

The Grid.

Maybe some of you have already heard this. Touted as the killer of Internet, grid is a technology that is being developed by CERN, the place where Internet was born. As the name suggests, it is a kind of distributed computing. Even though in the research phase, people have started predicting that like CDs and DVDs made floppy disks extinct, The Grid will make Internet extinct!

Well, I am a bit skeptical. Maybe after 10 years. Maybe 20 years. Even more. Anyway, we have to wait and watch!

Check out the Open Grid Forum. Also, check this from CERN.
