CopmputerWorld just put out the list.  At IBM Press, we were thrilled to see that The Social Factor by Maria Azua made the cut!  Hat’s off to Maria on a fine book!



In this 2-part podcast series, John Lamb, author of The Greening of IT and his colleague Ravi Subramaniam discuss Green IT and Cloud Computing. 



Part 1  explains the basics and helps you assess the business case for green IT. Part 2 continues the discussion with an emphasis on worldwide trends.


How about 400 pages of Lotus Connections!  We’re excited about this new IBM Press book, which is scheduled to be available the last day of 2009.  Talk about cutting it close to have it out in 2009!

Social Networking for the enterprise is very hot – and this book could not have come out at a better time.
