The dog days of summer have begun; time to whip out a woolen cardigan for the office. It’s a summer ritual in New York. Outside the temperatures go up, inside office buildings the temperatures drop. As I am writing this, it is freezing cold in here. As I forgot to bring a warm blanket, I make frequent runs to the water cooler to get hot tea. It is not the first time that I feel like working in an ice box. In fact, it’s seasonal. Since I came to New York many years ago, I witnessed the peculiar appearance of desk heaters, cellophane wrapped vents, colorful Pashmina scarves and thick sweaters in offices around summer time. However, with the backdrop of rising energy prices, the availability of energy management systems and a sleuth of green building initiatives, it still surprises me that little has changed since my first encounter with the summer chill.

Stories and discussions have been abuzz of New York City moving up the ranks as an incubator for tech companies. It is now the fastest growing tech center behind Silicon Valley, according to the Center for an Urban Future.
However, what seems to not be as well known is that there are massive opportunities for entrepreneurs across the entire New York State (not just in the Big Apple.)
Blinders were removed for good at a recent iNY event at the SUNY Levin Institute. More than 150 investors, entrepreneurs, and supporters of economic development convened to discuss New York State’s innovation road map. SUNY, the Empire State Development and others are centered on connecting talent, capital and business expertise in New York State to fuel entrepreneurship, job creation and socio-economic development.

In a 2010 study1 conducted by UBS and INSEAD, it was noted that the charitable cause which Asian families most supported was education.
We’ve all heard the adage, “When you educate a girl, you educate a community, or a generation, or even a nation.” How is that?

In June I had the opportunity to attend the International Cloud Computing Expo 2012 in New York. The flagship theme was Big Data & Cloud Computing. The four-day event was packed with speaker sessions and learning tracks, along with floor exhibits where IT and cloud vendors presented their latest services and products to attendees from 48 countries.
This was the first time I attended a cloud expo as a volunteer. Part of my volunteering job was to help with registering the attendees for the speakers’ sessions. I was also given the freedom to attend any speaker sessions and mingle with other IT and cloud professionals. My ultimate goal was to learn about how cloud and big data were changing the tech industry.

Green IT continues to be one of the most discussed topics this year, along with virtualization and cloud computing. Those of us who have been in IT know very well that some of these things are nothing new. When the old things come back with new names, however, it usually means that they are ready for primetime, but not always.
