Interesting Fact:

The convergence of several technological trends (the Internet, microchip technology and databases) have led researchers to envision a tightly integrated, planet-wide grid of computing, information, networking and sensor resources -- a grid that we could one day tap as easily as we now use a power socket or a water faucet.
