The authors review some networking and computing technologies that are having a significant impact, real or perceived, in the commercial computing world and might be valuable for future distributed scientific computing. These technologies include Java, MPI, OpenMP, distributed components, mobile agents, IPv6, and ATM. In many cases, an unfortunate combination of technical inbreeding and aggressive marketing has created jargon and hyperbole barriers to understanding. So, presentations of these technologies too often use terminology potentially foreign to scientific-computing people. The authors' goal is to remove some of these barriers.
