Particle physics laboratories and universities around the world are working to create a global data grid, a new technology with the potential to put the power of the world's computing capacity at the fingertips of everyone with a laptop computer. Grid technology pools computing power over the Internet, linking and managing global computing resources for solving the fantastically challenging computer problems of particle physics research. It allows physicists to access worldwide distributed computing resources from their desktops as if they were local.
