I try to leave as small and shallow a footprint as possible. I have a vehicle, but it lives its life as a driveway ornament; 13 years after I bought it, it still has under 34,000 miles on the clock. I walk and take mass transit whenever possible. I don't eat meat. I recycle. I avoid plastic packaging and bags as much as I can.

But there are two areas in which I fail dismally. I fly way too much - I'm already at close to 50,000 miles for the year. And my consumption of electronic goods is appalling. In particular, I just rip through laptops: for reasons that are unclear to me, perhaps because I simply beat the holy snot out of them, my laptops tend to last, on average, maybe two years.

Now I am setting up my latest. This time I am going the Ultrabook route. I am hoping it lasts at least through 2014.
