i wear black on the outside/as black as i feel on the inside

Google has turned the lights out today, and asks you to do the same.

Turn out your lights (all of them — go ahead, who doesn’t love candlelight) tonight from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm in your time zone, in honor of Earth Hour.

Don’t doubt that Google Earth will be recording images from space. You don’t want to stand out like sore thumb, do you?

cities around the world, including Copenhagen, Chicago, Melbourne, Dubai, and Tel Aviv, will hold events to acknowledge their commitment to energy conservation.

Peer pressure aside, you can learn more about how to reduce your computer’s drain on environmental resources at the Climate Savers Computing initiative.

And if you do turn out your lights tonight, join me by walking outside for a few minutes and taking a gander at those stars.
