This paper discusses programming the Grid in the space between the Grid infrastructure and those using it to conduct scientific research. Rather than looking at any particular grid programming model, we consider the need to address ‘usability’ of programming solutions in this space. As a case study we consider a popular solution; i.e. scientific workflows, and we reflect on Web 2.0 approaches. We suggest that broad adoption of Grid infrastructure is dependent on ease of programming in this space.
