I have to admit, I am a sucker for "pretty pictures" ...interactive content will keep me entertained.
My latest find:
Interactive Solution Finders : Spin the interactive wheels and find the solution to your challenges
and yes...I did spend time spinning....what about you? My favorite...was the green ....the blue was pretty, the red got my attention, the orange felt washed out. Oh wait... there was info too ....of course there is.... I did a bit more than spin....I actually did stop and read..... and the green was still my favorite.
Interactive content does get my attention...the spinning wheel wasn't highly sophisticated...just enough to keep me engaged over flat text.

There are always two sides of a story....
First I see this Citing Cost, Firms De-emphasize Energy Efficiency in IT Purchases and then I see "Why invest in clean energy?"
What do I believe? There are great opportunities in green technology. I've previously blogged about my local utility company has recently started to offer energy monitoring. Not sure what they use but I've now found another utility company doing the same thing...creating a smart grid. In the recent pilot, Consert, a smart grid software and integration company, provided the smart meter and software application technology built on DB2
