Solar power aside (which is cool, but pretty typical), there is a lot of gold in here for anyone who writes software and gives a damn about the environment:


Got so jazzed by that Low-Tech Magazine solar server article I'm considering reviving one of my favorite old projects:

@jjg I kind of like Medium's take, where they encourage you to "write a response" onto your own profile. Youtube used to have a similar idea. I should look into this for my own content


That's the gist. My hope is that it will make people own their commentary, and either put more effort into it, or click "cancel" 😁

@jjg I love how all low-tech blogging platforms have absurd names. My own low-tech blogging engine was called Unsuitable, exactly because someone said that Forth was wholly unsuitable for web-based application development.

Perhaps, after defeating Ken's Challenge with my first-generation #Kestrel3, I should port/redesign Unsuitable for operation on my Kestrel-3 and use it as my Kestrel Project's blogging engine.

@vertigo I'd use a blog written in forth (or at least I'd try :) ) Technically and socially, this sounds like a project that made all the right calls, energy efficiency aside.
