The Nag


Great site from the ever interesting Antiapathy (they of refashion, sex & climate change etc etc)

the nag

The idea is to take all the confusion out of what action to take by nagging the membership to do the right things. Think your most persistant business contact emailing you for something like a timesheet or report until you've done it, then times it by a large number. This month is about getting green energy. Next month fashion. I've got green energy, so I got off lightly first month. But I know it's going to get twisted pretty soon.

I love the whole domanitrix-y diktat do-as-you're-told thing, it's so eco-kinky. Gorgeous DIY-look site too. Check the 'crap prize of the month', it's a classic. And then there is lots of clever content, eg how we can overtake Iceland on renewables just by each asking two mates to switch to green power.

If you join up do, pls join my group (greenormal)

I like it a lot. simple idea that literally cut the crap. it's fascinating to see this change evolving and the whole eco-nag turning on it's head it a positive appealing way. i'm spared from the first month as well....phew...

good weekend

we tried to get green electricity at our company

we were told nobody does this (yet), it's for domestic users only

IS THAT TRUE? (in UK)

WHO/HOW TO NAG TO GET GREEN POWER SUPPLY?
