"Connecting the Cloud, Data Centers and Your Footprint"

What’s the real environmental impact of your latest Google search, Facebook post, or streaming Netflix movie? Cloud computing enables our business and social culture to rely on increasing amounts of data and connectivity, but few people know that their virtual footprints have concrete environmental impacts.

A diverse group of experts on cloud computing and data centers will share their true environmental impacts and discuss how to connect end-consumers with their virtual footprints. Christina Page, Yahoo! Director of Climate and Energy Strategy, will offer the experience of “the world’s most visited home page” and share leading technologies in high performance data centers. Joshua Hatch, Director of Sustainability Analytics at Brightworks, will provide lessons learned from sustainability consulting on data centers for Facebook, Yahoo!, Google, and Equinix. Architecture and technology author Andrew Blum, a correspondent for Wired and contributing editor of Metropolis, and will share research, insights, and conclusions from his new book, Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet.
