Tech Vendors Push Green Day
No, no, they're not sponsoring a rock concert. They're pushing a day of energy conservation. Will it make a difference? Here'a a bit that caught my eye this morning: Citrix, HP and others are pushing a "Power Down IT Day."
Sure, they may have self-serving motivations for doing it, and it's not the first industry-wide effort like this, but it's interesting all the same. One mild oddity: it's slated for August 27, which falls smack in the middle of a week where a good chunk of the U.S. workforce will be on vacation.
I'm still kinda wondering if this whole green thing is real, and whether or not it's really all about cost savings...
