IBM has already won support of grid projects for supercomputing in England and the Netherlands, and now seems ready to take on the Internet. Of course, the article says it could be many years before we see any fruits of this bounty." This has been submitted many times, so we're posting it. But somehow I resent the fact that it's just a vaporous press release generating this hype, taking advantage of a well-known idea that many are already working on and was forecast many, many years ago.
