Via an RCGP (Royal College of General Physicians) toolkit on how to make
medicine more environmentally friendly, I just came across a search
engine called Ecosia. The RCGP recommends that we (meaning everyone in
primary care, ie. all doctors' surgeries in the UK) should set Ecosia
instead of Google as the default search engine on whatever browser we
happen to use, because the money Ecosia makes from advertising is all
put towards reforestation schemes.
I've spent part of the day changing the browsers in our surgery so
they've now all got Ecosia as the default search engine. You've probably
all heard about this initiative already, but I'd never come across it
before. I've been browsing their website and they do seem to be doing
genuine good work. So, I thought I'd pass on the information.
PS - very interesting debate about AI in music, sparked by Simon Mclennan!
