Going “green” is tough. We receive junk mail, use diapers that have a half-life of maybe a 20 years (speculating here), drive our cars half a block to pick up a gallon of milk that is in a plastic container we just toss back into the garbage.
Well, with another kid on the way, I have been thinking of doing a whole lot more recycling. But there is something else that I spend a great deal of time doing – staring at a screen and especially Google.com. According to Justine Ungaro, a fellow photographer, “If Google had a black screen, taking in account the huge number of page views, according to calculations, 750 mega watts/hour per year would be saved.”
Blackle is finally the new black.
UPDATE: Apparently there is also another website called Ninja (all black and “deadly accurate” – get it) that does the same thing as Blackle. [Thanks to Tim Sanders for this tip in his latest blog post]
