Just last Friday we shipped the March/April issue of Mission Critical to the printer, which means that you will see print copies of the issue in about two weeks. Most of the issue is already online, if you can’t wait.
It also means that this is content week for me. The days leading to closing are hectic and full. The week immediately following closing, content week, is much different. I return emails and phone calls, field the first compliments or complaints about the newly posted issue, and generally catch up on postponed work. It is during this week that I wear one of my favorite hats: Chief Content Officer.
Most of all, though, I plan content for the next issue and upcoming webinars, which makes it one of the most fun weeks of the publishing cycle. Of course, at this stage, even I don’t know the final article lineup with 100 percent certainty. I do know you can expect coverage of PQ issues, something on DCIM, and a story on drivers that make colo an attractive option. I’m also hoping to see case histories on a financial institution and a hospital ready in time.
At the same time, I have also scheduled scoping meetings for a series of webinars, mostly covering electrical reliability topics. These include:
- April 10: Effective Backup Solutions, presented by Dennis DeCoster of Mission Critical West and Scott Good of DPR, sponsored by Kohler
- April 25: Backup Systems, presented by Mike Gulas of ConceptCSI and Dan McGroary of Trinity Mission Critical, LLC, sponsored by Cummins
- May 9: Topic TBD, presented by Joseph Hollo of CH2M Hill and an expert from MW Group, sponsored by Kohler
- May 22: Power Constraints in Data Centers, presented by Bill Mazzetti of Rosendin Electric and Sunny Purri of ESD Group, sponsored by CyrusOne
- May 30: Cooling Basics, presented by Julius Neudorfer of Naat, Inc. and Chris Kurkjian, sponsored by Aquatherm and CoolSim
- June 5: Power Issues in Data Centers, presented by Syska’s James Coe and John Diamond of DAS Associates, sponsored by Siemens
- June 20: Bridging the Facilities/IT Gap, presented by Keith Lane of Lane Coburn and Syracuse University’s Chris Sedore, sponsored by CyrusOne
Siemens will also be sponsoring summer events on July 17 and August 30, which I begin working on very soon.
Is it any wonder why I enjoy content week so much.
