Today, on Earth Day, as we look at ways to preserve the environment, video is surely a way to limit our carbon footprint via video teleconferencing, video chat, and other technologies.

The promise of the Web as a means to decrease our reliance on carbon-based transportation is the vision of two of the Internet’s great visionaries:  Robert Metcalfe, who co-invented Ethernet, and Vint Cerf, who is considered the “father” of the Internet.  Today, Cerf is the chief technology evangelist for Google.

I’ve had the wonderful good fortune to interview both over the years on the topic of the Web and the environment and I’ve published both videos here today.

Happy Earth Day.
