Gird Yourself for “The Grid” – Coming to Your Computer This Summer
No, it’s not science fiction. It’s the Internet on steroids, enabling downloads 10,000 times faster than today’s typical broadband connection. It’s called “the Grid” and it’s coming to your computer this summer.

Seven years in the making, The Grid will fully come alive in late June, when the European particle physics laboratory CERN fires up its massive Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is buried under France and Switzerland. Scientists will cause hydrogen particles, hurtling at near-lightspeed, to crash into each other, creating mini-explosions at temperatures hotter than the sun.

In a fraction of a second, each crash will generate a flood of data, which will be picked up by sensors and routed to computers all over the globe for analysis. Some 2.3 Terabytes (2.3 million million bytes) of data will be generated each day of the experiment.

Since that data storm would easily overwhelm today’s Internet, engineers created The Grid to handle the deluge. They set it up with dedicated fiber optic cables and state-of-the-art routing centers. They’ve got 55,000 servers installed now, and expect to have 200,000 within two years.

But while The Grid was created to meet the data demands of this earth-shaking experiment, it will immediately take on the mundane chores of today’s Internet, flowing email, digital movies and graphics at unimagined speeds. We’ll be able to send 3-D images and enjoy real-time gambling like never before, making the Internet obsolete.

With The Grid fast approaching its global debut, a host of Grid-themed web domains (addresses), including those below, are being offered for sale by Internet-and-Grid communications consultant WebTalkerPR to businesses and individuals:

GridQuick.com
Griddex.com
GridGrease.com
GridGrabber.com
BestGridSites.com
GridGripper.com
Grideze.com
GridGrope.com
GridLux.com
GridTracks.com

GridGrinz.com
Kidzgrid.com
GridGrit.com
GridGains.com
Gridgit.com
GridBetting.com
OffTheGridEntertainment.com
OffTheGridSports.com
OffTheGridEnergy.com

To purchase any of these domains, visit the website and click on the “Buy This Domain” link. For the latest news on The Grid, visit the government-funded site www.isgtw.org.

As for the June Collider project… some experts warn that the experiment could get out of control and create a gigantic “black hole”, threatening Earth itself. Says CERN director general Robert Aymar, “The system is totally safe. There is nothing to fear.” Shades of science fiction and perhaps a little Dr. Strangelove?

Anyone know how I can buy a domain name??

Little Red Riding Hood said to the monitor of her computer,
"My, what big, flashy pixels you have". "The better to see you with, my dear", was its reply.

scan where, who, and what you do in real time", was its reply.
