  • (Key message for each slide included at the top of note pages) Bicycle idea – it takes everyone… Notes from call on 08.011 George Demerest has been working on Mark Sunday’s data center presentation for Linux and OpenWorld. There’s also a collateral piece and a white paper pending - CC would like to pull together a two-page data sheet specifically on the data center - George talked about the things we are doing in tech to be green: compression, less paper requirements, less disk drives…In apps, way more – ecoadvantage, ecotransparency, ecoinnovation, etc. Send a note to evelyn and cathy re: my deadline on an overview. From a tech standpoint, we are using our own technology to enable some of the good stuff in the data center, like virtualization . Mukesh mentioned another example, which is how we work with Dell to preset our laptops to use less energy, but they won’t let us tell the story (at least, with their name!) Tech: increasing utilization, buying energy efficient gear, and imprving the way we run it Note about context: we are an office based business, so let’s face it, we are focusing our attention compute facilities and work environment (heating, cooling, lights, etc.) Travel is the other big area.
