28th February, 2023 – Wavelength is committed to bringing you the most interesting voices in B2B tech, and our latest guest is one such person. Please welcome Sebastian Moss, Editor-in-Chief at Datacenter Dynamics!

Seb came on to talk about heatwaves, how many pitches he gets a day, and why running a datacenter publication doesn't mean you can't be critical of datacenters. 

Topics we discussed included:

  • Datacenter electrical usage preventing new houses being built in West London.
  • The link between climate change, heatwaves, and datacenter uptime – and how it all ties in to our most important institutions.
  • The role of datacenters in the future of the data economy.
  • Will datacenters based in space or underwater become widely used?
  • How his role has changed since joining DCD as a reporter in 2017.
  • The different challenges involved in managing a news website and publishing a 90-page magazine
  • How many pitches he reads a day, and what separates the winners from the losers (or the junk folder),
