About this talk

Content has weight. It consumes energy and creates pollution during creation, publishing, use, and storage. Digital is physical. The Cloud is on the ground, where all the data and content are stored on 70 million servers. Each server caused between one and two tons of CO2. We can all do our part to create less content of a higher quality. Data and content are out of control, and every year it creates more and more pollution. Let’s do something about that. Join Rahel Anne Bailie for a chat with Gerry McGovern, a well-known and highly-respected professional in the content strategy community. A highly-regarded speaker, he has spoken on digital customer experience in more than 35 countries.
