Go Green - the tech way!

Importance of going Green and reducing fuel consumption has never been more important considering geo-political reasons and the sheer limitation of oil resources. These are some tips on how technology can be used:

  • Shop Online - Avoid a car ride to bookstore. You get slick deals too!
  • Pay your bills online
  • Sign up for electronic statements instead of paper statements for credit card, bank, etc.
  • Look for a book online in Google Books, Text Archive, etc.
  • Get your TimeSelect or ePaper online subscription avoid buying real newspaper
  • Avoid face-to-face meetings by using online conference tools like WebEx, Microsoft Live Communicator
  • Use mapping tools to find most efficient route : MapQuest, Google Maps , Live Local
  • Use Power off / Hibernate features of your OS. There are some many "choices" for this..

I believe technology is bringing significant impact in reducing fuel consumption. I believe with the spread of social awareness for conserving energy, we will see new and innovative patterns in generation/delivery/consumption of energy
