Caching on Camera

This morning I took an Anglia News camera crew geocaching with the family. Thankfully it was a lovely morning and the lush green woodland we walked through should look great on camera. Not sure if my bits were any good, but my 5 year old daughter stole most of the limelight anyway.

I wonder how many new geocachers the piece will create when it goes out next week?

Carbon Neutral Website?

While pondering the power consumption of the Geograph servers I wondered how tricky it would be go “carbon neutral”. What that means is we’d counterbalance the effect of CO2 emissions from our electricity consumption by planting sufficient trees to mop it up.

Seems appropriate to me! is a site that allows you do this, and our power consumption would be counterbalanced by planting 3-4 trees a year. The Carbon Neutral folks will do this for £10/tree, which is great, but I’d much rather have something like this done by people connected with the project in some way.

So, let’s say I want to see 5 trees planted before the end of the year – does anyone have any contacts or ideas on how we might get this done?
