    A New Green File Format: WWF

    Link: Save as WWF, Save a Tree :*Home

    Every day, entire forests are cut down to make paper. Paper thatís senselessly used to print out documents all over the world: websites, emails, even entire books, in spite of the fact that it's easy to avoid printing by saving the document as a PDF. But even PDFs can sometimes also be printed out. So to stop unnecessary printing and encourage a new awareness about the use of paper, weíve developed a new, green file format: WWF. A format that canít be printed out. A simple idea that saves trees. Join in. Decide for yourself which of your documents donít need printing - and save them as WWF.
    Current version for Mac OS 10.4+. Windows Version coming soon.

    According to that link its available for Windows now.

    Interesting idea, but ultimately going to drive people uup the wall because there's bound to be one page they need to print!

    PDFs can already be marked as not being allowed to print...

    So the WWF are encouraging people to share documents using a locked-in proprietary format?

    That's one of the more idiotic things I've heard this month.

    Couldn't we just defenestrate everyone on the planet who feels the need to print out emails? Surely the cost savings would be better and it could be a spectator sport.
