We are happy to announce that we have sent the book to the printers! This represents a major milestone for us and it means we are getting very close to moving into the next and very important phase of promoting the book. The book will now go through one or more proof prints before we announce a full and final release. Taking a retrospective look at the process, I wish we could have sent more resources on promoting the book before now,
but being a small non-profit creative commons based project, resources are limited. The good news however, is that a number of our contributors are actively finding opportunities to promote the book in both traditional and creative ways. Additionally, we have found some people who like what we’re doing, agree with our message and have
volunteered to help promote the book. One such person is Tripta Prashar, Director of independent Green IT Consultancy firm Giving Time and Solutions Ltd in the UK.
We will be preparing a press kit and presentation kit too. If you believe you could help promote the book and more importantly our message of the power of IT in enabling the transformation of our societies into ones characterised by low-carbon emissions, then please either contact us or feel free to use the kits which we will release. We appreciate all promotion – from as small as a tweet, to creating imprints of the book
with co-branding. As long as our uncompromised message gets out there we are happy!
Finally we would like to congratulate Sean Whetstone (who wrote the Thin Client chapter in the book) for winning the Environmental Project of the Year at the Green IT Awards.
