I will present an overview of how physicists are planning to"do" LHC scale physics starting with the turn-on of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2007. The focus will be on preparing the underlying infrastructure in grids, networks and software to create an efficient, effective, global system for handling the 10's of Petabytes of data per year typical of an LHC experiment like ATLAS or CMS. ATLAS will be used as an example case to illustrate how physicists in 2007 and beyond will simulate and analyze data from LHC experiments. I will emphasize the need for a seamless infrastructure capable of harnessing these global collaborations intellectual and physical resources to be able to make discoveries at the LHC scale.
