On monday I'm presenting a paper on solar.lowtechmagazine.com during the 'Computing within #Limits' conference.

In the paper I'm describing the design choices we made, such as designing for unavailability and how they were based on reducing a few key metrics such as data transferred, calculations per request and use of third party services. This opens up a way of thinking about #degrowth and ICT. We should be looking in to that waaaay more.

The paper also tries to implicitly answer the 'how do we do sustainable web design?' question and argues aiming for reduction (of bytes transferred, computation and infra required) as useful rule of thumbs guiding a design. That is to say, solar protocols, 'low tech look', 3.5MB dithered images, green CDNs etc ain't it.

However, it also self-criticizes solar.lowtechmagazine.com for the fact that it is so unreproducible and a very limited and 'easy' use case. So yeah no answer but thinking through degrowth should definitely be considered as the direction of the answer..

Pleased to report that @jomc and I are speaking at a free online event hosted by the Internet Archive and Library Futures on Apr 28. We will be discussing her book Lurking, and what happened when "in the 1990's and early aughts, people became users, and users put their trust in a corporation to do the job of a library."

Hey everyone. This Sunday, March 28, 11am-12pm AEDT @becfary and I will be leading a reading of the introduction to Jenny Odell's 'How to Do Nothing' at Hill of Content Bookshop for Melbourne Design Week. It's a wonderful chapter, and book, and we'll be responding to it with a focus on the question, 'How can we promote peer-to-peer learning through design?' Bec has graciously stepped in for Toni Roberts. Entry by donation booking, please join us if you can! designweek.melbourne/events/re

The project I've been working on with Anuraag Bhatia for the last little bit is now live over at room2.fm/ as part of Darebin Arts 'Exhibiting Culture Online'. It's a series of reflective prompts set to a different soundtrack and and visual each day which will culminate in an online performance on the 5/3. For us it was about creating a space that allowed for both personal contemplation and a shared vulnerability
