A new webcast session is scheduled this Sat and details are:
Topic: __ Green IT and Client Computing __
Presenter: Benjamin Cassell
By 2010, 75% of organizations will use full life cycle energy and CO2 footprint as mandatory PC hardware buying criteria (Gartner Group 2008). Thin clients are the obvious choice, but require significant change. An easier way to make the transition is to buy energy efficient computers or computers containing less pollutants. Pollutants in our waterways and carbon emissions are the two separate areas that need to be addressed. Some products claiming to be green may compromise one of these concerns for the other. In this session you will learn about the client computing technologies, their power consumption and ways to make your client computing environment more environmentally friendly.
After finishing school, Benjamin enrolled in a Diploma in Photojournalism and after 2 years and some other study in Computing and Literature he completed this qualification and had a couple of travel articles published. For the next year he fell into Scuba Dive Instructing and then went back to Computers. Ten years on Benjamin is still a IT specialist in software with a degree in Technology majoring in Information Systems. However having worked for several different types of organisations of different sizes it taught Benjamin what he really wanted out of his career – having always been quite independent and concerned for the environment and people's health, the emergence of 'Green IT' was the break he needed to start his own business, Green Earth IT.
