The Story of “Send”

Google put together an entertaining animation showing what happens when you click the “Send” button in your email application. The Story of Send explains the various steps an electronic message goes through to get to its intended recipient.  It’s actually pretty amazing that we can send a message anywhere in the world in a mater of seconds.

Google’s also trying to show you what a “Green” company they’ve become.  In actuality being “Green” can save a company a lot of money in operating costs so it’s kind of win-win for business and the environment.  Just about every large company on the planet is looking for ways to decrease operating costs and if it happens to have a positive environmental impact that’s just free PR they can spread about.

I’m still waiting for someone to figure out how to efficiently extract Hydrogen from water and capture the remaining Oxygen (which could also be used as fuel).  Seems like a pretty good (clean) way to produce energy to me!
