AFAIK Blackle is just wishful thinking because:

1. Keeping the monitor black might sometimes work for CRT's but then are
all internet searches done on CRT's

2. Blackle site cannot compare with Google in terms of search speed,
hence we might just as well as use Google

3. I am not sure of this, but if guys at blackle were so concerned about
the "whiteness" then why not just write a  plugin / addon for browsers
to do the conversion at the client end rather than put on a whole server
/ site to do it
