On Thursday I will be talking on the role of web standards in reducing 
carbon emissions. This is at the Web Standards Group meeting at the 
National Library of Australia, 2.30pm, 15 October, 2009. This is a free 
talk with all welcome, but you need to RSVP for catering purposes. Also 
speaking will be Pia Waugh as her role as an ICT policy advisor for 
Senator Lundy: <http://webstandardsgroup.org/event/178>.

I will be talking about how I used the web to teach people how to use 
computers and telecommunications to reduce energy use of the computers 
(and materials use), as well as use ICT to replace greenhouse gas 
generating processes. The students have included senior people from 
federal and state agencies and the CIO of a North American university 

ps: Assuming the ISBN arrives in time, I will also use the opportunity 
to launch the new edition of my e-book "Green Technology Strategies". 
But not on the Amazon Kindle. ;-(
