I wonder how much greenhouse gas was emitted by the Greenpeace campaign in encouraging 50,000 teenagers to use Habbo, in an online survey about greenhouse gasses (see bottom of article)? 50,000 PCs use a reasonable amount of electricity. I wonder how much electricity is used in viewing their 90 second gaming campaign video? I'm sure they'll use "Carbon offsetting" as a get out of jail free excuse.

My application for England manager appears to have been turned down.

Don't forget it's Wendy House on Saturday...  yayyyyyy

Ducking old joke

A duck walks into a bar and asks: "Got any Bread?"

Barman says: "No."

Duck says: "Got any bread?"

Barman says: "No."

Duck says: "Got any bread?"

Barman says: "No, we have no bread."

Duck says: "Got any bread?"

Barman says: "No, we haven't got any fucking bread."

Duck says: "Got any bread?"

Barman says: "No, are you deaf?! We haven't got any fucking bread, ask me again and I'll nail your fucking beak to the bar you irritating bastard of a fucking bird!"

Duck says: "Got any nails?"

Barman says: "No"

Duck says: "Got any bread?

On-line campaigning:

1 person has an idea.

3 people do the website.

30 people promote it to all their friends

{1 week later)

30,000 people are raving to each other, on-line, about what a good idea it is.

It gets in the news.

300,000 people are raving to each other about how great an idea it is.

(3,000,000 blog bosts later)

3 people actually bother to do whatever it was the original campaign was about.

Awareness raising and promotion via the web is fine. Trying to change behaviour via the web is more difficult as it's a more numerous, sceptical, cynical and fickle audience...

love the duck joke. Barman sounds like Foxy. Will be passing that one off as my own in the office tomorrow ;)
