This spring, Mightybytes founder Tim Frick spoke on the topic of web sustainability at TEDx BentleyU. In this 13-minute presentation, Tim debunks the common misconception that the web is a green medium simply because it’s paperless, and offers solutions for a lighter internet footprint.
What, exactly, is web sustainability? The internet is often associated with being a green or sustainable medium. After all, it replaces paper. Why wouldn’t it be green? In this presentation, Tim explains how the internet has amassed an annual carbon footprint of 830M tons, and outlines some solutions for what we can do about it.
