Network is the computer

Check out this post by Jonathan Schwartz the COO of Sun Microsystems. He talks about the computing grid that Sun in building and how it is going to simplify the life of CIOs.

Though, I am not sure whether Sun will be able to strike gold or not, I do love the vision. Making a generic computing grid is a huge challenge. There are all sorts of computing grids. When you use Google to search for something, you are tapping into Google's grid. When you participate in an auction on Ebay, you are tapping into Ebay's grid. But to make the grid generic enough, such that it can be accessed by anyone for any need, it very difficult.

If they make it simple and compelling enough, they will surely strike gold.
