Co2 Emissions On The Web

Danny Van Kooten crunches the numbers on Co2 emissions for websites with high traffic in a recent blog post. He calculates that reducing file size by 1KB on a file that is loaded by 2 million websites reduces emissions by ~2950kg per month. That equates to 5 transatlantic flights between New York and Amsterdam.

Diversity in Organisations

Karla Thomas posted a fantastic helper post on medium for organisations looking to welcome diversity, by actually doing the work and not just saying "We welcome diversity". The post describes initiatives that companies need to adopt such as anti-bias training, HR policy reviews, holiday celebration and assessment tools.
