I heard something about this in one of my CS classes last semester, I'm not sure if this was specifically what the professor was talking about or if it was something similar but I remember hearing how they were working on a better Internet.

Woah nice, you know what this means. More COOP! I also had a professor who was doing research on faster cables, but nothing from the ground up like this.

From what I understand The Grid will use all fiber-optics and no legacy infrastructure equipment. Seems to me that would require a whole lot of money be invested by current ISP's to upgrade their networks or perhaps build new ones if the enormous bandwidth supported by the Grid is to be made available to the general public. In other words I don't think regular blokes like myself will be able to use this anytime soon.

I heard this back when it was called the Internet 2.0. Can't wait for the holo-chats.
Lol, the Grid.
Awww, it doesn't work nearly as well. The Gridwork sounds better.
