Its Green Time

It is DIFFICULT to get a man to understand something when his SALARY depends on his NOT UNDERSTANDING IT – Upton Sinclair

An Inconvenient Truth - Poster Global Warming is definitely an issues that’s on our minds, at least our sub-conscious. An Inconvenient Truth certain helps one get a perspective into the seriousness of this problem. Although many people, material have tried to help open peoples’ eyes to this grave concern, none have managed to drive the point home better.

Al Gore has demonstrated through this documentary, without a shadow of doubt, the impending consequences that we are about to face as a result of our ‘ignorant and blind’ actions over the past decades. What captured my attention for the entire duration was the sequence in which his point were stated, adequate use of imagery and video and also his ability to connect with his audience no matter what region of the globe they are from.

The idea of ‘go green’ is not something new. Its been around for quite some time. I remember a show on Discovery that discussed this very issue form a ‘worst case’ perspective. Although i watched this show at least 5 years back, i do distinctly remember the designs of an architect ( i have not been able to research him on Google) who came up with designs for buildings meant to be constructed on water – the designs being inspired by his fascination towards ‘gears’.

In my quest to find anything i could about the architect and his designs, i stumbled upon a few (out of millions) of ‘green designs’ and other ‘green news’ that are worth taking a look.

We have to be able to change the world we will in, for us and for our future and perhaps a renewable resource like ‘political will’ could give us the direction we are looking for to help forge on in this time of uncertain futures.

Blogcamp.in

Originally uploaded by wildgrey.


The Bloggers in India are dead serious about what they do. And this here is proof. In about a month’s time from now Cheenai, India will play host to what is going to be India’s biggest Blogger Unconference – Blogcamp.in. It promises to be “…a rich mixture of workshops, practical demos, presentations, interactive quizzes, lectures, iron-man challenges, debates, group discussions and games.” There are like a kizillion things that are going to be discussed there and as far as i can tell all of them are things most of us could use some information on. You could take a peek at their wiki for a detailed listing of topics that are to be discussed.
You know its something huge when some of the big guns of the blogging industry support it, in this case Robert Scoble(Can we all please stop calling him ‘ex Microsoft Blogger’? He’s got a new job folks, VP of Media Development, PodTech.net.) and lot many others.

You might also want to check out the various stuff Bluesaze has designed for the folks at Blogcamp. Here are some of the only captions that i could think of in the wee hours of this morning.

1)Blogilicious – The East Side Experience.
2)The Blogilicious Experience.

As soon as i think of something else i’ll put it up too!
