The world wide computing infrastructure on the growing computer network technology is a leading technology to make a variety of information services accessible through the Internet for all types of users: from the high end, high performance computing users through to many personal computing users. One important feature of such services is location transparency; information can be obtained irrespective of time or location in a virtually shared manner. We introduce Ninj, an ongoing global network wide computing infrastructure project which allows users to access computational resources including hardware, software and scientific data distributed across a wide area network. Preliminary performance results on measuring software and network overhead are shown which promise the future reality of world wide network computing.
