Doing the right thing while keeping powered up 

Most portable or mobile devices need power and that is provided by batteries in some form – either rechargeable or non-rechargeable, built-in or replaceable. 
All of those batteries have their advantages and disadvantages, some last longer than others, some are cheaper in the long-run, some need more attention than others i.e. charging or replacing. 
Whatever the battery, it will need to be replaced at some stage 

How we design

Again and again I am astonished as to how long it takes for a great idea for a design until it becomes mainstream.
It likewise amazes me how we design things on a daily basis, the things that are not the great inventions but just things like buildings and infrastructure.

Why distributed workforces will win, by Keith Valory, Plex

In Silicon Valley and beyond, there are still many advocates of the idea that teams have to work in the same physical place to reach their fullest potential. Remember the uproar when Yahoo banned working from home? Well, I work with a distributed workforce of more than 70 high-tech professionals spread across more than 20 countries, and I can say unequivocally that this is by far the most productive, fun, and tight-knit group I have ever worked with — and I have worked for some great companies.

What happens when a family eats only organic food for two weeks?

A Swedish family has eaten only organic food for two weeks as part of a study conducted by The Swedish Environmental Research Institute. The study – commissioned by Swedish supermarket chain Coop – saw the family dramatically change its diet, with impressive results. A video about the study introduced the family of five, with mother Anette explaining why they typically didn’t eat organic food. “It costs more than conventional food and we’re a big family,” she said in the video.

At the Core of Sustainable Electronics

Some interesting thoughts about electronics and power consumption. But there is another side of electronics that is so often completely ignored or at least ignored in big parts: EMF.

There’s rightfully much ado about the climate — from extreme weather events, severe droughts and water crises to fossil fuels and the race to renewables. However, there’s far too little talk about electronics and their role in environmental ecosystems.

Some good starting point. It would be prudent to point to some other aspect of electronics, that is EMF, both by WIFI and dirty electricity, ie spikes, surges and harmonics within the electrical network.
While WIFI is already openly debated and dangers are researched, the dirty electricity phenomenon seem to be widely ignored.
