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:
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!)
