My friend mike told me about Blackle a week or so ago. It makes sense that black pixels on a computer screen use a very small amount of power compared to white pixels. Someone thought that just changing the background on Google from white to black we could change the world. Crazy tree huggers. Anyway, Since then I’ve changed all my Firefox search ‘keywords’ so doing a Google search routes me through Blackle instead. I wish they offered all the same features though, it would be nice to use a Black Google Reader, and a Black Gmail interface.

UPDATE: it really only affects older CRT monitors and can actually use more power on a typical LCD screen.
