A cool presentation by John Pettengill who work at Razorfish (a Microsoft company). He walks us through why the mobile web is just broken and a complete compromise and then explains what it could and should look like. Unsurprisingly the solutions are all iPhone based but right now, that device along with the App Store is what’s dragging the mobile web in to the future.
Wise words from GraphJam this morning. Never done this myself of course…
I saw an internal email regarding a webcast called Transforming the Data Center with Energy Efficiency and assumed it was an internal only event. To my surprise the link took me to our Technet site and it turns out this is a public webcast. A 2 hour webcast too!
With the explosion of online services and cloud computing, the rapid scale out of IT and IT infrastructures needs to grow at a pace that meets the needs of the businesses while maintaining both cost and resource efficiencies. Energy efficiency in the data center can drive down costs and minimize the environmental impact of operations. In this webcast, we discuss what Microsoft has learned as it implements disruptive, energy-efficient computing ideas in its own data center operations. These energy-efficient computing ideas should change data center designs at Microsoft and across the IT industry. We provide many examples that illustrate some of the key elements of this data center transformation, including outside air cooling.
Presenters: Christian Belady, Power Architect, Microsoft Corporation and Daniel Costello, Director, Microsoft Corporation
