One of my hometown newspapers, the Chicago Tribune, ran an article "Grid Computing Gaining Acceptance," by their lead technology reporter, Jon Van, on Tuesday. The online version has just one deficiency: it is missing the nice picture of a more youthful me that appeared in the print version (-:
The article emphasizes cycle stealing, which as I have often said, is a nice application for grid, but certainly not the main story. (Systems like caBIG and Earth System Grid, and of course the grid systems being deployed in corporate data centers, will ultimately be far more important.) But cycle stealing is certainly making a big difference, and systems such as World Community Grid (and the many Condor pools around the world) are making real contributions to science.
