In honor of Earth Day, I was originally going to offer up my favorite eco geek and feature them in their own post. But once I got digging, I really couldn't decide on just one! Sure, the term "geek" may apply to more than gadgets in this case, but not only are these ten people lovably geeky in their own right, they all have one thing in common: they're passionate about our planet! Check out some of my favorite eco-minded geeks, and then be sure to vote for your favorite on the last slide!
Jill Fehrenbacher, founder and editor-in-chief of the very chic eco blog Inhabitat, recently went on a shopping trip with The New York Times, where she picked out her favorite eco gadgets and products. To see some of the items that piqued Jill's interest, check out the slideshow. Source
Look what I found in this month's issue of Domino! It's geeksugar favorite eco blogger Jill Fehrenbacher! We swooned over the perfect geeky coupling of Jill and Engadget's Peter Rojas last year, and now, the happily-married Inhabitat founder has been profiled in Domino's ongoing "My Green Life" series — which shows a day in the life of an eco-conscious person.
Jill is a green goddess, but what I love about her is her love of and dependence on tech, which often comes through on her blog. In this column, she admits to fantasizing over a MacBook Air, and points us to some awesome websites: Project Earth Day (a green fashion competition) and Freeplay Energy (eco-friendly gadgets).
Adorable, cool, and intelligent — Jill Fehrenbacher is my eco/green/techie idol!
As part of our Geeks We Love series, I caught up with a few couples that, through the beauty of the internet and technology have influenced both our lives and each other.
If there was an award for cutest hipster bloggers with actual street cred, Peter Rojas and Jill Fehrenbacher would take the cake. He is the cofounder and editor-in-chief of Engadget, a heavily trafficked tech blog about gadgets and consumer electronics, and the cofounder of Joystiq, which covers the world of video games. She is the founder of Inhabitat, a sensible and chic blog that looks at the future of design, tracking innovations in technology and practices and materials that are pushing architecture and home design toward a smarter future. Though they describe themselves as "art school geeks" rather than your "average geeks," the newly-engaged couple stands out in the Love 2.0 generation for using technology to spread their passion for life and their work. What do they love about their jobs and each other? read more
