The LIGO I Science Run is planned to begin in mid-2002. The characteristics of the data stream, data volumes, data products, and data availability are discussed. The data analysis activities will be undertaken by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC^2). These activities include operating dedicated on-site pipelines at the LIGO observatories. In addition, a dedicated off-site facility for will be dedicated to melding data from different interferometer datastreams (both LIGO and eventually those of other international projects as part of a network-wide analysis effort). Exploratory university-based research on LIGO data will likely be supported in part by the nascent US computing grid. LIGO Laboratory and the LSC are working on grid computing efforts within the GriPhyN (Grid Physics Network) collaboration research activities.
