In my GridView I'd like to put the equivilant of this:  Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER") into the column called "ModifiedBy".

The idea is when someone edits a row their logged in user name is put into the "ModifiedBy" column.

I think you want to look into BIND and EVAL:

What I want is to grab the Server Variable for the logged in user as a parameter and plug it into the GridView.

The ModifiedBy field is currently a BoundField, but I could change it to a TemplateField.  I just don't know how to get the Server Variable for the logged in user value into the GridView.  I expect it will have to be done in the VB code behind, but I'm not sure if it can't be done in the GridView markup some how.

Text='<%# Bind([Server Variable for logged in user]) %>'  ??

This is your required server variable:
Text='<%# Bind([this.Page.User.Identity.Name]) %>'

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is your required server variable:   (Page.User.Identity.Name)
Text='<%# Bind([Page.User.Identity.Name]) %>'

or   (Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name)
Text='<%# Bind([Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name]) %>'

With square brackets, round brackets or no brackets?

Text='<%# Bind([Page.User.Identity.Name]) %>'
Text='<%# Bind([Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name]) %>'
Text='<%# Bind(Page.User.Identity.Name) %>'
Text='<%# Bind(Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name) %>'

All those give me a Parse Error:  A call to Bind was not well formatted.

Well, I ended up setting this, Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER"), to a variable in the code behind and using the code below to handle when a row is updated.
Protected Sub GridView1_RowUpdated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewUpdatedEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowUpdated
        If GridView1.EditIndex <> -1 Then
            Dim iReqID As Integer = CType(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value, Integer)        'CInt(GridView1.DataKeys(GridView1.EditIndex).Value)
            Dim iModifiedBy As String = iUserName
            Call SendModifiedByToRequisition(iModifiedBy, iReqID)
        End If
    End Sub

I ended up going a different route, but mas_oz2003's help lead me down the right path.  I used a different method, but gave mas_oz2003 the points for the aid.
