If your community/organisation/company is interested, I am keen to give on-line talks about #FrugalComputing, aka Low Carbon and Sustainable Computing.

Example topics are:

Frugal computing
On the need for low-carbon and sustainable computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

How to reduce the carbon footprint of your digital lifestyle

Frugal computing: developer perspective
On the need for low-carbon and sustainable computing and what developers can do about it.

But happy to discuss specific topics in this area.

(boosts much appreciated!)
