On the GRiD


When a particularly well-designed and innovative technology has been refined, reduced to an affordable price, and becomes widely adopted, it is easy to lose sight of the initial model and how much of an imaginative leap its revolutionary design represented. Decades ago, computers underwent a major breakthrough when the computing power that formerly required an entire building to house it, became reduced in size to a "desktop". Perhaps an even more revolutionary change in computer design occurred that we may be at risk of forgetting.
