Grid computing isn't faceless, nameless, sterile technology. Real people make it tick.  Who are these people and what makes THEM tick? Find out on CERN's GridCafé Web page People behind the projects.

You'll find dancers, runners, music lovers, doting parents, cyclists, shoppers and pilots. People who felt their drive towards computers early in life and others who at the age of five envisioned a life under the hot sun in a tractor. People who want to bring opportunities and prosperity to their part of the world. People who love computers and think the grid is cool. People looking for the quickest path to discovery. People inspired by Ian Foster, by brain drain, by the Matrix.

It really takes all kinds.  And what kind are you?  GridCafé invites you to contribute your own profile. There's a form on the Web page. Go ahead, don't be shy!
