I remember how thrilled I was the first time I had the privilege of glimpsing a 'data farm'. All those racks of servers; all those rows of server racks; the incessant deafening hum of the cooling fans; the refrigerator temperatures; all that information on one floor. Wired.com is a daily technology news website and the digital home of Wired magazine, and it's currently featuring a photo essay about one of many of Google's data centers. In case you want to know what that looks like--theirs is more colorful than most and has a sense of humor. The photo above, by Google's Connie Zhou, gives you an overview of the central cooling plant in their Douglas County, Georgia, data center.

Here's a wonderful opportunity to do some colorful sketching: come to the LSC-Tomball Community Library this Saturday for Fiesta! Starting at 11:30 a.m. There will be live music, dancing, crafts, and refreshments, all in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month at the library.
