Where the Internet’s Power Comes From (via Mackerel Sky)
This summer, Chris Mergerson and I – along with another friend and LBJ student, Mark – explored the intersection of the internet and energy as a part of a fabulous summer course taught by Gary Chapman on internet policy. Some of this work inspired a blog post, which I wanted to share with y’all.
When we send an e-mail or surf the web, we generally do not think about the energy it takes to complete our virtual actions – outside of how long our battery will be able to last if we are not tethered in.
Our activities “online” take require energy… where does the internet’s power come from? Chris Mergerson discusses in his recent blog post. Thanks for the thoughts, Chris!
