General Topic: Implementing 'internal' Access Grids
Detail:  We at Boeing are very much interested in the steps and technology 
required to implement an internal Access Grid.  We would very much like to 
hear from others in the community that have experimented and/or succeeded 
in this effort, and hear about lessons learned, technology used, etc.
We haven't done this yet, but it is our major thrust for this year.  We do 
not feel that we know enough people or technology at this point to be 
contributors, but we would like to see a track like this in the program.
