Join the ReGeneration @ CES and Beyond

Earlier, I mentioned that ReGeneration activities will be part of what Dell is doing at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) show. At our Eco-innovation booth, we'll be interviewing folks who stop by to have discussions about the environment. Here's the first video. And speaking o video, here's another one the provides a tour of our booth there. Also, Hope Lawrence from our design team discusses our upcoming Green Technology and Design Contest. We'll start accepting applications for the contest later this week.

For the rest of us not at the show, we're introducing a new site today:

The first thing you'll see when you log on is the virtual wall, where you can enter your thoughts on what green means to you, and also see ideas from others around the world. We invite you to share your insights and join the ReGeneration. Matt James from will be a guest blogger at the site and here on Direct2Dell for the next few days.

Beyond the virtual wall, I asked Sean Donahue, our resident green guru, what else folks can expect at the site. Here's how he broke it down:

Inspiration: The most innovative and inspiring ideas our customers, suppliers and partners are putting into practice every day. Examples include the University of California – San Diego, which recently installed a seawater air conditioning system and The Conservation Fund, whose Project Go Zero was the foundation for our "Plant a Tree for Me" and "Plant a Forest for Me" programs.

The Blog: Trends, interviews, thoughts and ideas, from Dell employees and outside partners and customers around the world. Our goal isn't to create a news center, but rather to tap into our vast global network to provide perspectives on key environmental topics and trends affecting our customers every day. Already several posts there. If you have an idea or a post, feel free to send along.

The Backpack: Before heading out on a movement to change the planet, we'll package the latest tips, tools, screensavers and links in a portable (and downloadable) "green" backpack.

We hope this encourages companies and individuals alike to think about changing things for the better. We look forward to working alongside all of you as we add new features, languages and content in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the site, drop us a comment with your thoughts and ask ten of your friends to join us in this campaign to change the planet.
