And I thought BAD was yesterday...hence my prelim post. A fun day nonetheless!

I think by our very nature bloggers are more attuned to environmental issues. We like to share ideas, and aren't afraid to put our opinions out into the open.

The fact that corporations are slowly starting to catch on is a positive sign. As always, true change comes from the grass roots levels.

By the way, I wonder why the term "social media" isn't changed to "conversation media?" Just a hunch, but corporations and institutions in general may see the term "social" as implying a Facebook type of site (ie. more social vs. an exchange of business ideas). Perhaps by using the word "conversation", the true nature and purpose of our discussions would be more clear.

I agree that on many levels, social networks are greening some professional sectors.
However, They also increase online activities, therefore electricity consumption and waste.
