Computation AND collaboration

Truly understanding the benefits of the Grid requires an understanding of the problems the Grid helps solve. The “inteliGrid”, or “smart Grid” some call it, is a European Union project designed to

… deliver on the long promised but never realised potential of networks, which people and companies can plug into, use its resources, and find and share information based on its meaning.

In other words, this view of the Grid is more than an infrastructure designed to avail computational resources. It’s just as much about the collaboration opportunity. See the InteliGrid website for more information.
