Earth Week... Are you "turning green"?

Earth Day so you're likely aware of several community activities that are taking place to encourage you to do your part. For instance, in the Toronto area, there are tree planting and clean up activities taking place all week. I'm planning to help clean up some parks in my neighbourhood on Friday.
Another community that many of us are part of is developerWorks. Recently added to dWorks is the GReen IT Report. From this site you'll learn the many ways that IT can be green and how this creates benefits for you and your company beyond simply "doing your part".
Learn from experts like Alan Ganek and David Barnes. Find links to all the latest books, white papers, articles, redbooks, and podcasts that are related to the green initiatives.
A link to my blog is on the GReen IT Report site and I'm planning to add additional content such as the following:
Electronic Book EnginesDo you feel conflicted buying a book about reducing consumption? I do... so I end up reading as many books electronically as I can. IBMers world-wide have a subscription to Books 24x7. You can find a link to the site from any of the employee home pages.
If you don't work for IBM, you may have a corporate or school subscription to either Books 24x7 or Safari Books Online. You may also purchase a personal subscription to these electronic book engines as well.
e-Book ReadersI've mentioned these readers quite often. You've likely heard of Amazon Kindle 2. For more of my thoughts / research on the topic, see DB2 in Books on ChannelDB2.com
I hope you enjoy the buzz around earth day / earth week!
If you have suggestions, comments, questions... I'm always happy to hear from you!
