Trying to compress about 50 year history of parallel and distributed computing (which we call multicomputing for short) is a highly ambitious goal and would require an entire book to give justice to several developments that took place world wide. Instead, in this article in addition to some historical account, the author’s personal perspective is offered which includes experiences with multicom-puting in America, Europe and Japan. Starting from humble beginnings we travel in time through a period of flurry of developments in parallel computing and make an account of key events in distributed computing. Next, through the perspective of our NOMADS (Networks of Mobile Adaptive Dependable Systems) framework which provides the infrastructure for the Service-Oriented Computing, we present our view on today’s computing and also describe the things to come. Some speculations about the future and trends will end with conclusions.
