calling all engineers

If you studied power, energy, or something else that can be applied to datacenter management and technology, consider a datacenter career. According to a recent NYTimes article, demand for datacenter engineers is going up. Of course, standard disclaimers apply here – this says nothing about what the future of such careers might be, considering current economic conditions, particularly with regards to the price of oil. However, at least in the short term, it seems as if datacenter careers are viable.

I'm starting to get into this a little bit – just started a project where power utilization is monitored in our IBXes. It's been a long time since I've had to do anything like this. I actually donated my thermodynamics book to a local library back when I lived in Los Angeles because I hadn't used it in over ten years and it didn't seem as if I'd need it. I think I donated one of my electronic circuits books also because it was just taking up space.

Cravalho authored the thermo book, but he didn't teach the class when I took it at the 'tute. However, we crossed paths a few years earlier. More on that soon.
