This "Good" is the enemy of "Enough"
Authored by: kirkmc on Oct 05, '07 10:55:30AM

The particular activity was the result of a conversation (well, an iChat) between Rob and I. I raised the question of turning off devices, and asked if he turned off his network access. From there, he suggested I mention it in the hint, then set up the poll. We could have mentioned turning off your Mac insted, though I would assume (or at least hope) that the majority of readers don't leave their Macs on all the time doing nothing. Rob, however, was sure that the majority didn't turn off their network access, hence the poll.

I agree that there are many ways you can save energy beyond turning off your cable/DSL box - more efficient insulation in your home, less AC, lower temperatures in winter, etc. But this was just an example that came up in a conversation. It's a shame that so many poster focused on that as a criticsm rather than address the real question of wasting energy.
