Morgan Stanley Carbon Offset News

August 15, 2007

As Greg Galitzine mentions, follow the money if you think the green movement is just a fad. Greg reports Morgan Stanley will be investing up to $3 billion in environmental markets consisting of among other things, carbon offset trading.   According the Morgan Stanley, the system will work as follows:   Under the new service, clients will compile their emissions inventory and calculate their carbon footprint by applying the monitoring standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, which has provided the accounting framework for many mandatory greenhouse gas programs across the world, including the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. DNV will then verify these emissions inventories and calculated carbon footprints.   Carbon quantification, monitoring and verification will be conducted consistent with ISO 14064 standards. Morgan Stanley’s Commodities Group will procure and cancel carbon credits equivalent to a client’s verified carbon footprint.

Cisco Beat Earnings

August 7, 2007

Cisco beat earnings by $120 million dollars and they say enterprise earnings are strong.   Scientific Atlanta also produced outstanding results for the company.   Emerging markets are growing at 40%   Here are some statements I just wrote up for a TMCnet article that should be coming out soon:   John Chambers is on record as saying has never seen such a surge in technology since 1990. This bodes very well for the industry. I would imagine Cisco should have a blow out quarter with most of the revenue growth coming from outside the US.   In addition, I would expect the company’s IP communications growth to be strong. This bodes well for the industry but as Cisco gets stronger it may become tougher for the smaller players to compete.   Update:   Here is a great article from TMCnet’s Tim Gray on Cisco beating the earnings.

Live Earth

July 8, 2007

You may have been reading some of the latest Live Earth posts from TMC’s Green Blog. As I sit here at my computer watching streaming concerts from around the globe I start to think about the massive quantity of data I am consuming. I noticed my wife too is streaming the concert on her computer. I wonder if this weekend will prove to be one of the most bandwidth-intensive in history.

TMCnet Goes Twitter

July 4, 2007

It seems like if you are under 18 you spend a good deal of time twittering on well – Twitter. Since my typical reader is above 18 you may not be aware that Twitter is a service allowing you to send and receive messages via SMS on cell phones. People spend hours letting their friends know (in excruciating detail sometimes) about all aspects of their life. “I am going to have lunch.” “I am having a snack.” “I am sick,” are some of the things you may see while twittering.   But if you get sick of twittering with friends and are interested in using Twitter to keep up with the latest (and best of course) communications and technology news and analysis, be sure to check twitter.com/tmcnet.

Green Technology World

June 12, 2007

The green conference I discussed here a few days ago has officially become Green Technology World™ to be held Sept 11-12, 2007 in the Los Angeles Convention Center. For more information please check out this press release. We are very excited about this event and we believe this new expo is a great way to show just how incredibly green many of today’s IP communications and collaboration solutions are.   In addition, expect this conference to include coverage on all technology which can be considered green. If it reduces your corporate carbon footprint or reduces gas or jet fuel consumption it will be discussed.

Google Goes Green

June 6, 2007

Google announced today it has acquired PeakStream. The company makes tools for programming multiple processors and this technology can be applied to multicore chips such as GPUs or graphical processing units.   Speculation exists the company may have made this purchase so as to allow Google’s servers to bring the GPUs into the mix when writing programs. Google’s programming language is highly abstracted from the hardware and if the company can find a way to leverage the powerful GPUs in the hundreds of thousands if not millions of servers it owns, the result could be an increase in server efficiency.   In the end, this efficiency increase will save Google electricity, resources and of course time, as processing will take place much faster.   This acquisition could be looked at as the ultimate “green” play… allowing Google to take advantage of millions of dormant graphical cores in its servers. As I mentioned yesterday, the world is going green, prompting TMC to launch it’s Green Conference in Los Angeles later this year.
