Advances in networking technologies will soon make it possible to use the global information infrastructure in a qualitatively di#erentway---as a computational as well as an information resource. As described in the recent book #The Grid: Blueprint for a New Computing Infrastructure," this #Grid" will connect the nation's computers, databases, instruments, and people in a seamless web of computing and distributed intelligence, that can be used in an on-demand fashion as a problem-solving resource in many #elds of human endeavor---and, in particular, for science and engineering.
