Taking to to Prime Time involves … Run Nimrod!
Taking it to Prime Time involves … What is the Grid? Making it work Grid politics
What is the Grid? Isn't the grid just the internet? How does the Grid compare with other industry-backed efforts, –Peer-to-Peer WG, CORBA, etc. Where do ASPs feature in the Grid? What high level applications do you see developing over next 5 years
Making it work How do I make single-sign on work when we have different underlying security models. What tools do you see developing to introduce a new user to the grid? How do I estimate how much resource I need? How should we write programs for the Grid. Could we develop a common grid currency ($) Are current protocols robust enough, and if not, what work needs to be done.
Making it work Will Grid level services appear in OS? Or should it be in the OS? What PhD projects would you set if someone was interested in working in this area?
Grid Politics What does the Grid have to offer a country like Australia How should enterprises embrace the Grid? Can we have enterprise wide grids? Why should I give you access to my resources? Should more vendors be embracing the Grid? What is the pathway to commercialisation?
