Data centers are a thing to be marveled at. After all, they really are the brain of a company. And just like a snowflake, no two data centers are the same. However, there are some things that every data center needs in order to operate. For example, cabling. There’s no getting around the fact that all those wires and boxes can create quite a scene. So we want to see it! Send us a photo of your data center in all its crazy, twisty and windy glory and you could win big!

Nearly two months ago, we gave our readers a mission: Design an ultra-low-footprint apartment in 420 square feet and have a chance to win up to $70,000 in cash, products and contracts for the best ideas. Some of you may have chosen to accept the mission; others may simply be intruiged to hear what exceptional ideas came out of it.
Since October of last year, TreeHugger.com Founder Graham Hill has been searching for the perfect idea, or blend of ideas, to renovate an apartment in New York City and live an environmentally-friendly life there. He began a LifeEdited contest asking people to create a 420sf apartment with an ultra-low footprint. With the belief that we all need to live in less space and have fewer possessions, he thinks we will save money, reduce environmental impact and live simpler lives.
On top of his specifications, we challenged entrants to add a Cisco ūmi telepresence system to their apartment designs. Why? Because Graham will be using Cisco ūmi to conduct business and connect with family and friends from his apartment while reducing emissions. Here are a few Cisco ūmi contest submissions that we wanted to share:
Hundreds of comments, 300+ submissions and 500,000+ page views later, the contest is over and Graham is ready to meet with the judges and select a winner. To watch Graham announce the winners live on Thursday, January 27 from 12-1 p.m. EST, tune in here: http://www.LifeEdited.org/livestream.html.
