eResearch and Cloud Computing

The previous post reminded me of the talk I gave at SC07 about “The Web as the Platform for Research”. Bill St.Arnaud recently blogged about it (“Cloud computing is the way forward rather than the Grid”) with a quote from yours truly.

What you don’t see in the presentation (and that was a big omission of mine) is Roger Barga’s name. Roger and I work closely together to develop/evolve the ideas and we are running various projects that help demonstrate them. 2008 will be the year with many great deliverables coming from our team. It’s all so very exciting :-)
