Ok so i just read Davey Winders blog about the effects having a black google page rather then a white one would have on the enviroment (A very good post by the way Davey). To me the concept of this sounded rather silly and off track from ways that we the IT comunity and other people who use computers actually could make a difference.
This got me thinking about the some of the other things that we could start doing out of habbit that actually would make a difference to the enviroment. The two that i came up with straight away were turning our monitors off when we are away from them for more then a few minutes and turning the brightness on our monitors down a couple of notches( not sure how much of a difference this one woud acctually make although i know that it does for laptops to increase battery life).
What things can you guys think of that we could all start doing to reduce the amount of electricity that our computers and other IT equipment are using?
