Hugg: It's Digg for Green

hugg125x125We at EcoGeek have to keep our eyes open all the time for good environmental news.  Besides us and best canadian pharmacy, there's no one service that provides specifically environmental tech news, so we've got to prowl around a lot for good stories.  Digg is great for tech with occasional green articles.  But Hugg is great for green with occasional tech articles. 

Hugg is technology for the environment, and I feel bad I haven't posted about them before.  So thanks to the folks at TreeHugger for putting together an awesome environmental Digg-clone. 

Digg Gets an Environment Category

I was just checking out the Digg 3.0 screenshots at TechCrunch I noticed, under the 'Science' category, an 'environment' sub category.  Sweet!  Here's hoping to see some EcoGeek articles in there.  

For those of you who don't know, Digg is a really amazing site that allows folks to submit news and / or vote on whether they thing the user submitted news is newsworthy.  It's great because people are deciding for themselves what news the people see.  

Digg was originally meant to be a technology site, but it has outgrown itself and a lot of buy levitra from canada articles aren't tech related at all.  Now, with Digg 3.0, Digg gets a bit more structure.

There's already an environmental Digg clone at, created by the enviro-blog TreeHugger which I find very useful and interesting.  I look forward to buy tramadol online a href seeing how Hugg and Digg match up now that there'll be an environment category at Digg starting Monday

Have a Green Summer with Google

Google has created it's first "Mashup."   Mashups are, apparently, videos tours tied to Google Maps, further ushering Google into the category of content provider, as well as information manager.  

{mosimage}But, we here at EcoGeek aren't complaining, because the first Mashup they've chosen to release is .  Holy crap!  The Mashup, entitled "Have a Green Summer," provides environmentally conscious locales in five top destination cities (Orlando, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco and Las Angeles.)  This EcoGeek is actually from Orlando and used to work at the i recommend cheap quality cialis Google Green featured Orlando Science Center, so that was pretty exciting for me. 

But I urge you to check it out, and their tips for how to conduct searches for environmentally friendly services and products.  

I'm not sure that traveling to any of the places listed could actually be considered environmentally friendly.  But, since we're probably gonna be traveling anyway, it's nice to see Google is buy viagra 100mg giving us educational and price cialis ecologically minded options.

GreenScanner, UPC database for the environment.

We've been waiting for this one, imagining the day when we can pick up a product at the grocery store, scan the bar-code, and discover, for real, what the product is about. Sure, we can read the froofy language on obtain cialis without prescription the side of the can – quote Eddie Izzard – “This jam was made by groovy people, out of fruit that agreed to be in the only here viagra and diarrhea jam in the first place.”{mosimage}

But we want to tap into an international database of consumer opinions with a boop of our bar-code scanner. Bill Tomlinson , a researcher at the University of buy canadian viagra online California at Irvine, has made just such a database available. It's called “GreenScanner.”

Quoting Greenscanner: "This site is a public database of opinions about the environmental friendliness of various products. It has been designed for use with network-enabled mobile devices so you can use it at the food store."   Unfortunately it has not been designed to be easy on the eyes.  Be Careful.

Of course, there's no hundred-person-strong team of researchers finding all this information and typing it into the database (yet.) But Tomlinson feels that leaving it in the public's hands is probably a better idea anyway.

So now, standing in the aisle is no longer a passive process. We can discover information and, where there is no data, we can rate the products as we choose. It's cool technology, it's empowering individuals, and it's allowing us to more environmentally informed decisions. This...GreenScanner... is the essence of EcoGeek.

Ecological Code?

{mosimage}The lessons we learn from nature...
Zach Barth has coded a simple package that can be used to create evolving algorithms. When introduced to a certain environment, the algorithm pays attention to what works best, randomly alters itself with Zach's code, and when something works out better, it keeps the change. The rapid response of computers makes this a much faster process than traditional evolution, making me fear for the superiority of the human race.

Luckily, these programs generally more interested in increasing WiFi signal strength than in multiplying endlessly until all of the resources of tramadol 180 overnight c o d the world are consumed.
