Can Smart Lighting Save The Planet?


LUX magazine asked me if I'd write a piece for them about how I thought new tech (smart tech if you insist) can save the planet - that's not how it came out.

Although this image, accompanying the article, is a bit too apocalyptic for my taste, its not that far removed from what I believe is the direction that we're headed if we carry on doing the daft and pointless things that this Generation Electronica seems hell-bent (hmm) on doing.

Like the Pied Piper, clever ideas about smart this and internet-enabled that draw us inexorably on, resulting in the exact opposite of making life more efficient and less energy dependent.

But because it's all happening somewhere else - we don't think about it.
And that's our mistake.
