Blogger support for our Say No To Phonebooks Campaign

Only a week into our campaign and already we’ve got the eco blogging community talking. We particularly enjoyed reading Michael Parsons post on http://www.smartplanet.com/news/household/10001221/death-to-the-phone-book.htm CNET’s Smartplanet.com Which reiterates our point that internet directories have far more to offer than paper directories.

  1. All very good I am sure and I may have thought so to until I tried for over twenty minutes to get into the 192.com website.
    Luckily I had kept the telephone directory and have made a mental note not to throw it away. Not just because of unreliable technology, or the many power cuts or even the fact that to compete with the book I leave my computer on 24 x 7 oops. I am not even worried about becoming one of those sad individuals who despite having to surmount various difficulties has decided he/she/it needs to, more than anything , be seen to be bonding to the internet. No I am simply loving the convenience of picking up a book, without being restrained to a computer or its desk and read it wherever I want to, with no regard for sunlight and to pick up the telephone in my own time and make that call, stress free. Of course if I had a beardy, woolly wearing, chain tying to tree agenda (and I have seen all types so don’t feel there is gender discrimination there) I might be prepared to state differently. Though notably the sanctimonious messaging to date seems still to be the popular placard on a stick, no doubt all materials sourced from sustainable resource…blah blah….
