Google tries to turn out the lights in San Francisco

The Google homepage turned out its lights yesterday in support of the of the Lights Out SF initiative. The Google homepage was turned completely black for users connecting from San Francisco -- but the goal wasn't to save energy directly (like some people think it would) but to convince everyone in San Francisco to flip the switch for one hour between 8 and 9PM.

Google trys to turn out the lights in San Francisco

Today, pictures of the spectacular (or not) results of this effort were published on the official website -- I guess this is proof that it's easy to make people listen, but getting them to act is another story. It was a nice effort though -- Google did their part to spread the word, and maybe next year there will be more support.
