Mastodon C



  • Week 1 wrap-up

    Fran Bennett Apr 20, 2012

    What a week! This startup thing is a lot of fun, but also much more work than having a regular job. So this week we’ve spent a lot of time building the beta live carbon ratings engine, which should go live by the start of Big Data Week on Monday. Bruce is coding like a […]

    Today is the first day of full time work on Mastodon C for the whole team (all two of us). Our first big goal is to get a fine-looking demo and the free cloud ratings service up.

  • Following the moon

    We’ve been having fun today calculating how to move jobs around in the day and night based on local temperatures. We heart playing with graphs. For example, AWS Sao Paulo has a very green local energy grid so is generally a good choice, but it’s hot (27c daytime max this time of year), so the server cooling […]
