On a (somewhat) related note... I say somewhat related, since IBM is
one of the big proponents of Grid / Utility Computing:
A new economic report says grid computing could be a $10 billion boost
to North Carolina's economy through 2010.
This report will be the subject of the North Carolina Grid Computing
Initiative Forum next week in Chapel Hill. Robert Cohen, president of
Cohen Communications Group, produced the report for the Rural Internet
Access Authority. It projects the impact of companies and state
universities linking their mainframe computers together to help solve
major research problems and develop new biotechnology and engineered
MCNC, North Carolina's nonprofit technology research agency, is hosting
the forum Oct. 28-29 at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill.
