The Greener Gadgets Conference made for an exciting end to the week yesterday, and as you know, Inhabitat live-blogged the whole thing HERE >. The conference was a chance for gadget geeks and electronic companies alike to think about the role of gadgets in our lives and how we can engage in more sustainable solutions for the future. Topics of discussion ranged from personal responsibility for energy consumption to how companies can track their carbon footprint to the role of sustainable design in improving people’s lives. We hope you joined us for our live blogging yesterday, but if you missed it– you can still read it here!

    the conference sure was great!

    Yuka, I was wondering the same thing. When a guy of such notability says something like, “video conferencing is the single most important technology anyone can execute on”, you definitely wonder if someone will jump on it.

    Olivia, feel free to add my post recapping and live tweeting the conference up on my site, if you deem it worth of such a great list ;-).

    The conference was a real eye-opener and I’m so excited that the conversation has been expanded to people who were not able to attend. I can’t wait for video coverage!

    On a separate note, I wonder if anyone has decided to get into the video-conferencing game as a result of Dr. Griffith’s recommendation.
