We must close the grid computing gap!

According to a New York Times article,
the leading technology companies in grid computing are IBM, HP, and
Sun, plus startups such as United Devices.  One could also add
Avaki, Entropia, DataSynapse, and Platform Computing to those mentioned. 

Every one of these companies is based in North America.  Other
than Platform, they are all based in the US.  So explain to me
why the Times’ headline is “Europe Exceeds U.S. in Refining Grid Computing”?  I must be missing something.
