Talk at eResearch New Zealand Conference, June 2011 (given remotely from Italy, unfortunately!)

Abstract: Whitehead observed that "civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking of them." I propose that cloud computing can allow us to accelerate dramatically the pace of discovery by removing a range of mundane but timeconsuming research data management tasks from our consciousness. I describe the Globus Online system that we are developing to explore these possibilities, and propose milestones for evaluating progress towards smarter science.
