In other some what related news, I am currently testing Windows 7 on my Dell XPS laptop. After the 2+ hours it took it to install I have to say I am somewhat impressed. I think in the near future after some testing I may just have to write a full blog post about my experience with this new Windows OS.
My dear friend Nashua Kalil recently informed me of Race2Renewables.com. This Web site contains the details for a new “Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Technologies.” This project sounds really incredible. I am a huge proponent and advocate for the green movement and I wish the team all my best.
Tweet this: “The Center and its programs are completely aligned with the Administration’s goal to “develop and deploy the next generation of energy.” The Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Technologies and Berkeley Renewable Energy Labs and Academy promises to be a prototype facility for clean tech energy development and deployment. The proposed 500,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Center will be located in the technological epicenter of the Bay Area, CA; its sole mission is to deliver upon the rigorous agenda set by the Obama Administration for energy independence in the United States, with a comprehensive plan that achieves renewable resource and clean energy development and delivery, economic stimulation and job creation, and education for our youth.”
It is just a bit old but still just as relevant.
Sample: “So, I wondered whose blogs are the most influential. Web metrics nerd that I am, I gathered some data and ranked them.
Let me put a disclaimer here: there’s a limit to the effectiveness of using any sort of statistics to gauge a person’s influence on other people.”
Sounds good to me. My colleagues over at CentreSource produced this top notch website to aim this cause. Check it out, excellent execution. Christian cause too.
David Griner over at thesocialpath.com describes the seven deadly sins of social media in his post. Griner reports that “there are a million ways for businesses to use social media well, and only a handful of ways to do it horribly wrong. So why do companies keep falling into the same traps?”
A very interesting read. Enjoy
