An example of some of the ideas discussed below, can be seen being used in some graphics engines, such as Lucas Arts Euphoria Engine:-
A digital molecular matter engine at work, an off the shelf middleware solution:-
This is about the next step in software evolution, computer systems can store objects, that have encoded into their data structures information that then tells the object how to interact with other objects, known as "local descriptions" within the industry. Global rather than local descriptions is the new goal for the software industry, i.e. how data structures interact with all of the data that maybe contained within a system. This was partly the idea behind the MNN, i.e. getting the system to globally see how all of the metadata related and interacted, this was seen as being the toughest challenge of all, at least at a programming level. The embedded code held within each local object being formatted in such a way, so as to allow the MNN to see them (relatively speaking) and eventually comprehend how all of those objects fitted together globally. This was seen as a way of building up an increasingly smart basic model, and it is only within the power of the proposed grid setup, that I believe current systems, would have the computing power available so as to process this global or should I say, universal view.
Software Management: -
Geeky but it does explain some of what I am describing here:-
A simple way to look at the software management setup at least at the network level, would be to assign each user a reference number. So when a user connects to the system, it would know who the user is and the capability of that users platform. Grid protocols are in development, just like the TCP/IP protocol, any internet connected device should be able to share both computing power and storage space etc, with any other connected device. Skynet gets built.
Major vendors are now collaborating so as to produce a set of standards for grid technologies. The global grid forum, is producing an Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA), a bit like TCP/IP or operating system, i.e. a set of standardised software tools so as to help manage grid type systems over ASP / ISP networks. Oracle was one of the first companies to introduce a software infrastructure designed for the emerging enterprise grid computing market. Also see I-Way / The Globus project / the National Technology Grid and the European Data Grid, there are many more, but it all boils down to the same thing, in other words a lot of people working on the problem.
