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

@wersimmon

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 :) )

@jjg@social.coop Technically and socially, this sounds like a project that made all the right calls, energy efficiency aside.

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
