[REBOL] Re: Some thinking about the way REBOL could be used ... if it is not alr

From: kemp::extelligence::net at: 15-Jul-2002 18:36

I definitely agree that REBOL has a number of aspects that make it attractive for grid and/or p2p computing (they are not the same thing). However, the article's comment that fast networks are required is totally fallacious - the needs of compute versus communication are application-dependent; SETI for example, uses hours of compute time versus only seconds or minutes of communication, as it is very compute-bound. It is, however, undoubtedly a grid-based distributed-computing application. Kemp
