demodulated unplugged

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Virgin Mobile, my cell carrier, about Earth Hour. From 8:00 to 9:00 tomorrow evening we will turn off all the lights and our appliances (except our Nintendo DSes) and sit in the dark.I like this idea. Lately I’ve been making a habit of trying to reduce and resuse a little bit more than usual. I use reusable cloth shopping bags and put small groceries in my jacket pockets. I turn off lights when I’m not using them. I turn off the tap while I brush my teeth.

I’d like to make a weekly habit of Earth Hour. Fridays at 8:00pm, ending at 9:00pm, just in time for jPod.

What do you do to reduce consumption of power and materials? It’s pretty easy and it makes you appreciate the things you’ve got, I find.


Derr, it’s Saturday, not Friday.

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.
