Collaborative Software As A Green Initiative

Google is supporting electric cars: Plug-ins converge on Washington.

Commuting by car, whether by a gas-guzzler or an electric vehicle, consumes energy and wastes scads of time.

A different way to reduce our dependency on oil is to enable telecommuting for jobs that are primarily computer-based. 

However, remote connections offer a lack of transparency and a less than robust environment for face-to-face meetings and other serendipitous interactions.

Isn't it a touch more Googley to put some more zing into social collaboration apps than to promote the use of electric vehicles?
