Impact of the Internet on Scientific Computing

The scientific computing community has long used the Internet for communication of email, software, and papers. SIAM's online journal server this year is a welcome further step. But, with the notable early exception of the Macsyma server at MIT in the 70s, there has been little use of the Internet for actual computation. In the past few years, we have again started to see experimental computational servers appearing. What are their prospects for success? What is needed at the client end? What languages protocols should be used for maximum interoperability and efficiency? How can we structure our applications to allow flexible adaptation to clients and channels of different strengths?
