Exciting news this morning, on the water front. GreenBiz just published a report on WaterOrg, IBM’s ambitious idea regarding:
“an educational and perhaps advocacy organization focused on establishing the value of applying advanced sensing, information technology and modeling to water management in the USA.”
Peter Williams, Chief Technology Officer of IBM’s Big Green Innovations, and the brain behind WaterOrg, must have heard my earlier call . . . :)
I urge you all to read the detailed IBM proposal, and to contribute any ideas you may have on how to take this project to the next level. Personally, I can’t help but see a convergence between WaterOrg, and some of the broader efforts to organize and centralize sustainability solutions, such as discussed in our earlier thread on green wikis.
