Video: Distributed Grids Around the World

This video might be a little dated, but Ian Foster of Argonne National Laboratory does an excellent job of describing how distributed grids are being used to advance research around the world. Recorded at the Globus State of the Union at the Open Source Grid & Cluster Conference, Oakland, CA, May 2008.

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
