There’s a section in The Armchair Environmentalist called “How to Survive the Online Life,” covering Repetitive Strain Injury and offering some suggestions about exercise and positioning. But we also talk about the bigger question of how the planet is going to–we hope–survive our online lives. While using recycled paper is a fine thing to do, in an office or when printing books, computers are a bigger problem. So I was fascinated by this article, Design to Recycle, written by Alex Pang of the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto. My secret passion is the whole world of design, and I helped found the UK Ecological Design Association, so this analysis really resonates for me, and will, I hope, give you some new ideas.
