The Sustainable Network

Here’s a chance to read the first 12 chapters of O’Reilly Media’s “The Sustainable Network: The Accidental Answer for a Troubled Planet “ for free.

Book Description

If this book can help open your eyes a little to the networking industry and this connective tissue called the network (sometimes boiled down to the Internet, but which is by no means indicative of all it entails), then I will have accomplished what I set out to do. Sure, the network is made of cables, routers, acronyms, and geeky things you may never care to know too much about, but it is important that you know enough to be able to understand its significance and then help shape the role it plays in our lives. That’s why it’s in the news every single day and terms like broadband, 3G, tweets, and smart grids are a part of our everyday vernacular.
