One Network story comes to mind here at Argonne. We have used the internet
to demonstrate long haul distributed computing by running one large parallel program
which used a set of parallel processors here in Chicago and a set of parallel
processors at Los Alamos. This program was computing the solution to one problem
by coordinating the work across the net. The actual problem was nothing impressive
but it did prove the concept of using resources over the internet.
