I’ve been thinking a lot about various creative reactions to the absurdity that we all carry supercomputers in our pocket but have to keep upgrading even to retain functionality because software gets worse and surveillance gets more pervasive
Things like low-power computing (Rpi and friends, microcomputers, retro computing, etc), some of the solarpunk stuff, the “smolnet” (Gopher and Gemini and the like), and so on seem to be interesting ways of highlighting that things could be other than they are
Is there an umbrella term for this? Is someone collecting projects that relate to “computing designed to work well even with low-performance/low-power gear”?
My bank just used a picture of a smiling handsome daddy to get me to try their new app, and I first thought they somehow figured out I was into such handsome daddies and were using Sex Sells about their app.
Then I realized they actually think I AM a handsome daddy, and that I would resonate with the ad in that way!
Shout out to @jjwolverine for being the sexiest fuckin rubber duck I've had the pleasure of (distantly) debugging with!
