Goggle PowerMeter Update

, 2010-04-19

As I have mentioned before, I have a TED 5000 electric power monitor installed in my house that monitors and records my electric power usage on a second by second basis. The TED 5000 can also upload data to Google PowerMeter, so you can access your current and historical power usage over the web. Every week, Google sends me a usage summary. This week’s summary is shown below.  As we have started moving into Spring, I have gone from averaging 14-17 kWh/day to about 10-12 kWh/day. I initially had a goal of staying below 400 kWh for a month, but now I am trying to see if I can crack the 300 kWh/month barrier.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
