The Network of Networks project aims to strengthen civil society influence in global public policy

How much energy does one web search expend?

Uruguay

Recent documented studies has shown that computing and networking electricity direct and indirect (air conditioning of data centers represent 50% of the total power supply bill) consumption account for a global warming impact comparable to that of civil aviation. Most of this consumption is linked to the use of the Internet and global powerful applications such as search engines.

The report focuses on the development implications of information and communication technologies (ICTs) worldwide. The position of the US should be ringing some alarms.

21 January 2010

Women’s rights advocates have made policy-setting inroads into many spaces that affect women’s lives – governments, schools, religious organizations, health care systems and economies. But what about the virtual space of the internet? The recent Internet Governance Forum provided opportunities to critique, expand and transform the dialogue around issues that impact women in gendered ways, including access, privacy, security, the control of one’s information, and regulation of sexual content.
