I spent the day in meetings at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center talking about GREEN.

Green IT, Travel Avoidance and Organizing Green for all employees.

Big things I learned today are:

  • We need to standardize travel reporting and measure the carbon effects of business travel.
  • We need to train employees to be able to brainstorm, measure the impacts of various potential solutions and then solve problems in a group, a la Quality Circles and 6-Sigma. 

Hats off to the folks at TechWeb for their terrific unconference. Although the first one involved only 65 (David said it was 90) people, the quality of the interaction was impressive. I liked the freewheeling participation style and the real-time definition of the actual agenda.
