Energy efficiency of ICT

Just finished my talk within the energy consumption in ICT workshop and heard many interesting things including the obvious one about how much raw energy is used by world ICT. A quote from Nick Carr that a Second Life avatar consumes more energy than an average Brazzilian. This make me think that social networking, You Tube etc are not sustainable ecologically!!! So think about the energy you are using when you sign onto Facebook, MySpace etc!!!
