Thanks to Matt Moore’s blog discovered a Web 2.0 Social Networking/Travel service called Dopplr. When you plug in your trips (car, air etc …) it has a cool Carbon Calculator that allows you to keep track of CO2 emissions. Given the social networking aspect of Dopplr, this could be a very useful tool to quickly calculate the CO2 emissions of many travellers. Many conferences now are trying to go Carbon Neutral.

Great initiative AND government should be doing more of this stuff! Apparently, each of the 10 groups need to present 1 BIG IDEA by the end of tomorrow.

Week 1 reflections Dinner with Dave Pollard and Viv McWaters was a highlight and I have captured parts of our conversations here. I just noticed that Dave too has “distilled” some of his conversations in Melbourne this week in this What works & What Doesn’t post.
