Links and Resources: February 24th, 2008

  • My post on Green IT discussed how we need to measure and monitor power to make sure we really save money/environment. In this video clip from Microsoft Technet someone describes the process and tools they used to do just that.
  • Although males make up the majority of the IT workforce, studies show that it is females that are responsible for content creation on the web. This NY Times article talks about young women on the web.
  • Eva at the Education Virtually Anywhere blogs about informal science lecture series held in pubs and cafes in Seattle called Science on Tap.
  • Glen Hiemstra over at blogged about future proofing your college. Among others things, the campus may provide residential and social context while learning will take place here, there and everywhere. Glen, who is based in Kirkland, did a great presentation on the future of education in 2000 at the UW. The show is still available online at UWTV here.
