We’re excited to be hosting this month’s CleanwebNYC meetup at AetherWorks! The event kicks off Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30pm at the AetherWorks office, located at Bryant Park in Manhattan. We’ll have pizza and beer, and anyone is welcome! RSVP here.
If you’re not familiar, Cleanweb leverages technology to tackle resource problems in energy, water, food, waste, transit and beyond. Check out the CleanwebNYC meetup page for more information on their monthly meetings and how you can get involved, or cleanweb.co to see how the Cleanweb initiative is addressing resource challenges on a global scale.
There will be two presentations Tuesday on solutions that use computer hardware resources more efficiently:
- We’ll be presenting the storage software we’re developing, AetherStore, which turns unused space on machine hard drives into a shared storage network. AetherStore requires no new hardware and allows organizations to use their existing storage space more efficiently.
- Revivn re-purposes unused technology for social and environmental impact, creating “a new and greater purpose for unused computers.” They use outdated electronics from companies to build out various initiatives helping people gain computer access.
It should be a fun night, so join us to see what’s going on in the CleanwebNYC community – and of course to enjoy some free food and drinks! RSVP now!
