Interview: Internet pioneer Vint Cerf on grid computing

In my first Computerworld US column I touched briefly on the Globus Consortium's belief that open standard approaches (like the Globus Toolkit) are what will ultimately usher grid into mainstream enterprise use.
This month, I sought the wisdom of one of the pioneers of IP networking, and perhaps the most influential figure in open standards and interoperability discussions -- Vint Cerf. Currently senior vice president of technology strategy at MCI Inc., Cerf championed the TCP/IP protocol and played a vital role in steering the commercial growth of the Internet.
