Will Free/Open-Source software save the planet? Computers have their share of responsibility in the environmental challenges humanity is currently facing. Awareness is growing about the opportunity to think of IT in a different, more environmentally friendly, way - a concept known as "Green IT". Computing supergiants such as Google make the media headlines when they struggle to lower their power bill - even planning to build datacenters close to nuclear powerplants. But from the planet's standpoint, electric consumption is only the tip of the iceberg. Green IT also is a matter of electronic waste (WEEE), smart grid, open design of collective infrastructures and faster innovation rate through openness.

Presentation delivered at the Open World Forum, October 2010, Paris.
