Overgrowing demand

Internet is not green. Yes it is more environmentally friendly than some alternatives and digitalization of services does save the environment. But at the same time we consume more and more entertainment that consumes bandwidth, server resources and CPU cycles.

And we havent even reached the full global adoption of the internet. There are billions of people who are not here yet. And of those who are,  only a small fraction out of them that consume the most.

I must be into something

Yesterday I submitted my session "Green tech thinking" to the Drupalcon Amsterdam. I really hope it gets approved and I have a chance to talk about this important subject.

The response in social media after I posted my proposal has been inspiring. There is clear interest in the subject. Green values are a hot topic of today and I believe I have a pretty good chance to get accepted.
