The Best of Creative Computing: Volume 3

https://www.amazon.com/Best-Creative-Computing-3-ebook/dp/B0...
Finally, a fantastic piece of computing history has been formatted for the Kindle.The Best of Creative Computing: Volume 3 contains more than 120 articlespublished in Creative Computing magazine in 1978. It contains an amazing collection of material of interest to technology historians, retrocomputing hobbyists, and programmers.These articles were written at a time when home computers were only becoming reality for the first time, when electronic calculators were still an expensive novelty, and when computers were only beginning to be used in business.Armchair Arcade reviewed the book: "The book was originally a 1980 release and collected more than 120 articles from the 1978 run of the legendary magazine. From the tone and content of the articles, you can definitely tell this was written for an unusually intelligent, sophisticated, and yes, geeky audience, which makes sense considering the type of individual who would be interested in computing in the late 1970s, and is a refreshing change from what tech magazines became from basically the late 1980s."

Data Center 2.0: The Sustainable Data Center

https://www.amazon.com/Data-Center-2-0-Sustainable-ebook/dp/...
Data Center 2.0: The Sustainable Data Center is an in-depth look into the steps needed to transform modern-day data centers into sustainable entities.A sustainable data center should be environmentally viable, economically equitable, and socially bearable. Creating sustainable data centers is not a technical problem but an economic problem to be solved.This book takes a conceptual approach to the subject of data centers and sustainability. It offers at least multiple views and aspects on sustainable data centers to allow readers to gain a better understanding and provoke thoughts on how to create sustainable data centers. "Data Center 2.0, is not so much about technology but about people, society and economic development. By helping readers understand that even if Data Centers, enabling the Digital economy, are contributing a lot to energy saving, they need to be sustainable themselves; Rien Dijkstra is on the right track. When explaining how to build sustainable Data Centers, through multi disciplinary approach, breaking the usual silos of the different expertise, Rien Dijkstra is proposing the change of behavior needed to build sustainable Data Centers. Definitely it is about people, not technology." Paul-Francois CattierGlobal Senior Vice-President Data Center - Schneider Electric“In Data Center 2.0 The Sustainable Data Center author Rien Dijkstra has gone several steps further in viewing the data center from the perspective of long term ownership and efficiency in combination with treating it as a system. It's an excellent read with many sections that could be extracted and utilized in their own right. I highly recommend this read for IT leaders who are struggling with the questions of whether to add capacity (co-locate, buy, build, or lease) or how to create a stronger organizational ownership model for existing data center capacity. The questions get more complex every year and the risks more serious for the business. The fact that you're making a business critical decision that must stand the test of technology and business change over 15 years is something you shouldn't take lightly.”Mark ThielePresident and Founder Data Center Pulse“Data centers used to be buildings to house computer servers along with network and storage systems, a physical manifestation of the Digital Economy. Internet of Things, the digitization of about everything in and around us, brings many profound changes. A data center is the place where it all comes together. Physical and digital life, fueled by energy and IT, economical and social demands and needs and not to forget sustainability considerations. Sustainable data centers have a great potential to help society to optimize the use of resources and to eliminate or reduce wastes of capital, human labor and energy. A data center in that sense is much more than just a building for servers. It has become a new business model. Data center 2.0 is a remarkable book that describes the steps and phases to facilitate and achieve this paradigm.”John Post Managing Director - Foundation Green IT Amsterdam region
