I attended the annual meeting of the Cooling Technology Institute as I was putting the finishing touches on our March issue. Though I haven’t been able to attend every annual meeting since my first (in 2000), I’m always thrilled to be back. The passion and enthusiasm of the speakers and attendees invigorates me. Spending time among them sparks ideas that will pay dividends for you in the coming issues.
I was still thinking about the insights I gained at CTI when research by Stanford University and Cornell University crossed my desk. At first, it may be hard to see how the paper — “Anyone Can Become a Troll: Causes of Trolling Behavior in Online Discussions,” published as part of the upcoming 2017 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing — relates to cooling technology.
