Blogs and Global Warming

January 19, 2008

The hot debates surrounding search engines, logarithms and privacy
on the Internet
are only beginning, I think.

Today I ticked the little box that allows search engines to find this
blog.

Will more surfers find it, as a result? Will adding it to
the listings increase electricity usage, as subtle links here ripple
out around the system, taking up space, if not time.

Does anybody know how much fossil fuel is needed to propel an average blog?

These questions must be taxing the brains of philosophy students everywhere.
If they are not, the Planet, if not the air, is bound to get much hotter.
