Reflections on Jorge Zapico's lecture

I have been moderately interested in sustainable development and sustainable technology. The subject has felt a bit boring, but Zapico's lecture made a difference. He, in some way, inspired me and opened my eyes to see the importance and value of sustainable development.

I had not thought about Internet as something that needs to be managed, that needs a lot of infrastructure and power to work, even though I knew that. Internet often feels like something in the air, always available, in all situations. I learnt during the lecture to see how Internet consumes large amounts of resources and that it is not sustainable in the long run. I took the hippie-style, which Zapico presented, to my heart. I suppose that made me change my mind about sustainable development.

  1. I will come back to that topic in tomorrow's lecture. Furthermore me, Jorge, Björn will plan a new course on media/Internet and sustainability that will be given during period 1 (autumn 2012) and that will also involve lecturers from the departments of strategic environmental analysis and industrial ecology at KTH. It's all very new, the course doesn't have a name yet and will be planned during the spring. You are welcome to apply for it, I think it will be given in English.
