People who design and operate Grids are part of them

"Lessons in Grid Computing: The System Is a Mirror", by Stuart Robbins

Here are some ideas:

  • People who design and operate Grids are part of them
  • Handicap; nearly universal inability of technologists to explain themselves
  • The Prime Theorem:
    • The Information Systems mirror the people who build and operate them

This means:

  • Systems don't talk to each other, if people don't talk to each other
  • Relations between grids reflect the relationship between the people who build and operate them
  • Fixing problem of grid computing requires first fixing relationships between people
  • If we want to transform a Grid, we must transform ourselves too.
