Read this fascinating article written in the New York Times all about how there are thousands upon thousands of data centers from all the search engines and internet providers WASTING power and energy - each data center using up the amount used by a small city!

And NOW what to do about it?
Is it our insatiable appetite to post pics, and want everything at our fingertips?
