A computer scientist from Binghamton University has recently scored about a half million in funding--$450,000 from the National Science Foundation, and $50,000 from Google--that will help support his interested in "green" software development. Green software? It's an issue we've looked at before--some computer code is said to be "greener" than others, for instance, if it operates faster and therefore is more energy-efficient. "Saving energy is an activity that should come from many layers," said Binghamton's Yu David Liu, the recipient of the grants, who has been at the university since 2008, in a release. And it should even come in lines of computer code.

I'd say the "Green" Hot-Button" is well on its way to getting way out of hand.
