Grid Computing Info Centre Grid Computing Info Centre The Grid Computing Information Centre (GRID Infoware: aims to promote the development and advancement of technologies that provide seamless and scalable access to wide-area distributed resources. Computational Grids enable the sharing, selection, and aggregation of a wide variety of geographically distributed computational resources (such as supercomputers, compute clusters, storage systems, data sources, instruments, people) and presents them as a single, unified resource for solving large-scale compute and data intensive computing applications (e.g, molecular modelling for drug design, brain activity analysis, and high energy physics). This idea is analogous to electric power network (grid) where power generators are distributed, but the users are able to access electric power without bothering about the source of energy and its location. What is Grid ? How is it different from Clusters/P2P ?

Forum on Ubiquitous Computing Messages Jim Mitchell: I was shocked to hear of Mark's passing. Mark and I interacted only a few times per year over the last 10 years or so, but I always found myself resonating with his ideas, which continue to have a profound influence on me in my pursuit of ubiquitous computing at Sun Microsystems in the Java world. Of course, it was also easy to resonate with his drum playing in Severe Tire Damage, but that was a much more physical and visceral "resonating" :-) I already miss him a lot. We needed him in this valley. Forum on Ubiquitous Computing
CityBuilder A year of recognition and maturity… The ongoing research on text at can now be described from a perspective of two thousand years of Bible reading, with the commission of a permanent work at the Shrine of the Book in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Additionally, considerable progress has been made in OpenGL technology, multiplying the previous figures (dozens of thousands of text characters are now flying overhead…)
Norbert Wiener, Pink Floyd, Enigma Links: Norbert Wiener (1894 - 1964) "Wiener’s work before and during World War II led to the publishing of Cybernetics, or control and communication in the animal and machine in 1948. In it, he described a new way of looking at how the world functioned, based on his research on the way in which information is transmitted and processed. He saw a world that focused on information, not energy; and on digital or numeric processes, not machine or analog. His theories not only laid the foundation for this new field of study, they also largely predicted the future development of computers."
