Earth Hour

Earth Hour has been to Sydney for yet another year.

Our home and city was plunged into darkness. We enjoyed the silence and the lack of stimulation. Made room in the mind for more thinking. Away from email and the computer in general for an hour.

Our discussion by candlelight turned to energy saving devices and whether or not there are laptops out their that are environmentally friendly, that do not contribute to the massess of e-junk we produce each year. Worth more investigation?

We even considered running a computer with a dynamo ... get a work out whilst surfing the net.

I think we are going to make Earth Hour a regular occurrence at our place.
