Let's build cooler servers instead
This is a good idea to discuss but maybe move to the back of the line when it comes time to sign up. In many locales, it would take a basement full of servers to get enough heat during the winter, or, yhou simply couldn't pack enough servers in to get the heat you need. Then you'd have to get rid of the heat during the summer. Second, servers in the future will generate less heat as the circuits continue to shrink. The early mainframes were so hot they had to be water cooled. The latest servers can be kept operative in larged numbers with modestly cooled ambient air. Instead of starting a trend to move servers into furnace areas, let's continue the trend of running cooler and cooler servers.
