Want the Greenest Device? You May Already Own It

I have a lot of issues with the political reporting of the New York Times but I absolutely love their weekly Tech We’re Using, which focuses on the tools their reporters use to do their jobs.

This interview with Kendra Pierre-Louis, the paper’s environment/climate reporter (or “Gloom is My Beat,” as her Twitter bio says) has a lot of great stuff about sustainable tech, for which I have a soft spot, for the obvious reasons, but also because it’s something my wife has written about.

I really related to this particular quote from Pierre-Louis:

I can say I tend to hold on to electronics for years — I once had a laptop that lasted nine years. Toward the end, people teased me about it because it was, physically speaking, a brick. I got my workout carrying that thing around.

I’m guessing she had a ThinkPad. Those things are indestructible.
