Girding for the Grid
Tuesday, September 27, 2005

Interesting article by Carole Goble of myGrid UK (isn't that cute, myGrid!? I think they should have called themselves iGrid). She discusses the different uses biologists and physicists may have for Grid Computing. There is a huge need for extremely flexible, loosely coupled and adaptive systems. I think that Richard Gabriel is right when he says that we need to move away from axiomatic systems and towards biologically inspired ones (indeed, that's part of why I love Lisp). My slogan for it is: patterns not protocols. Now all I need is an actual example but that may be a bit of work!
