Earth Hour 2009

The above scene is based on an actual event :) Yes, there were Cybercafes which actually participated in Earth Hour 2009 Malaysia from 8:30PM to 9:30PM yesterday (Saturday, 28th March) by switching off their lights - but not the computers, network, Internet, and air-conditioners of course. After all, you're only supposed to power off the lights :P Of course, you're welcomed to do more - like having Earth Hour every week - if you want to. Earth Hour is meant to be as a catalyst - even if you believe it's just another gimmick and publicity stunt in a world that's running out of ideas to sell and entertain people with.

Perhaps in time to come, we might see other new events like this - either on the global scale, or related to the environment in some way with all the climate changes that are happening around us. Perhaps next year BrickGamers will turn our site dark for that 1 hour - we will see in 2010!

Oh and by the way Jack, they do sell illuminating keyboards for gamers who play in the dark ;)
