If your community/organisation/company is interested, I am keen to give on-line talks about , 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.

wimvanderbauwhede.github.io/ar

How to reduce the carbon footprint of your digital lifestyle

wimvanderbauwhede.github.io/ar

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

wimvanderbauwhede.github.io/ar

But happy to discuss specific topics in this area.

(boosts much appreciated!)

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

tl;dr:

** The problem:
* By 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2Β°C. This growth in computing emissions is unsustainable: it would make it virtually impossible to meet the emissions warming limit.
* The emissions from production of computing devices far exceed the emissions from operating them, so even if devices are more energy efficient producing more of them will make the emissions problem worse. Therefore we must extend the useful life of our computing devices.
** The solution:
As a society we need to start treating computational resources as finite and precious, to be utilised only when necessary, and as effectively as possible. We need frugal computing: achieving the same results for less energy.
** The vision: please read the article, I'm out of characters.

Yay, I now have running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run though.

Hey folks, I am looking for a solid team manager.

I am the hiring manager for this position.

I need someone with a strong belief in DEI, some security experience, and exceptional people skills.

This manager will be managing the best team of ThreatHunters and defenders on earth.

Think a Blue Team with a Spear.

If you are interested, DM me, and we can talk through it.

anyone from cybre who wants an account at transmom dot love just ask me! it's a tiny but stable glitch-soc instance exclusively for moms who are trans. (not necessarily literal childcarers; you are trans and a mom if you tell me you are one.)

transmom.love/about/more

in practical ways you are probably better off at larger instances, but if you like the domain name and glitch-soc you're welcome.

Note: I did not say applications of category *theory*. In general, when mathematicians use categories in ways they are comfortable with, they do not call this 'category theory'. Category theory refers only to the ideas they are not yet using. 😏

@benjancewicz posted a great story this morning citing this article from 'The Hill' thehill.com/opinion/energy-env
"Stanford University study says the cost of switching the whole planet to a fossil fuel free 100% renewables energy system would be $62 trillion, but as this would generate annual cost savings of $11 trillion, it would pay for itself in 6 years." [1]
Inside, that article had a link to 'the study' [2], which simply led to a pay-walled abstract. A different link led to a /version/ as pdf of the actual paper here: web.stanford.edu/group/efmh/ja

Hi Everyone,

this is to announce the release of my album, "Unknow". It collects all the tracks that I composed the last few months, which was a very precious time for me. It marks the end of another stage of me -- another "phaze", would Frank say. It includes tracks that I composed, in the proper sense of that word, and algorithmic compositions -- what I call "my little Grundgestalts." My key objective is to get better at this, and to develop myself a little further, so I'd love to hear from you with your remarks, advice, suggestions, criticism...

From the bottom of my heart, my thanks to you for your trust and continued support.

Musically yours,
Eidon.

You've never heard "heavy rain flooding the rail" or "damage to the electric third rail" sound this chill, I am begging you to take a listen pleeeease

Permacomputing aims at only using computing when it has a strengthening effect on ecosystems.

Jingu’s rebuilding is designed to reproduce the existing structures as exactly as possible. Each rebuilding uses the same materials, the same construction techniques, and is built from the same set of drawings.

Rekka and I lived right by the Ise Jingu, just a forest bikeride away.

#OTD

On August 19th, 1745, Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard at Glenfinnan. This was the start of his campaign to regain the throne for his father.

The monument in the photo marks the event, which locals refer to as "the '45".

If you're learning #uxn and have any questions, don't forget to use the forums instead of emailing me with questions, that way anyone can also learn from your questions.

#OTD

On August 16th 1745, the first engagement of the Jacobite Rising took place at the High Bridge, which spanned the River Spean (part of General Wade's military road).

11 MacDonald's of Keppoch engaged 85 government troops who were travelling to Fort William (from Fort Augustus) to strengthen the garrison.

By leaping about, playing their pipes and shouting, the MacDonalds convinced the government commander that they were a much bigger force.
