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!)

tim hunkin's secret life of componets
I made my way through his secret life of components series. I can tell it's something I'm going to enjoy revisiting again and again. So much great information, but just watching him mess around with all sorts of stuff has been incredibly inspiring, too.
"Hundreds of billions of dollars in direct financial support is received by the producers and consumers of fossil fuels every year – but they benefit from far larger subsidies by not paying for the harm burning fossil fuels causes. When the damage from the climate crisis and air pollution is accounted for, the fossil fuel subsidies reach $6tn a year, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Guardian analysis shows this is equivalent to $11m a minute globally, $4m a minute in China and more than $1m in the US."

Ich bin ein grosser Fan vom Vertical Farming & deshalb ist dies auch die Infografik der Woche in meinem aktuellen Newsletter 👉 https://www.metacheles.de/p/metacheles-8-erdbeben-erleben?s=w

trying to give away 17+ arduino UNOs and components(please boost)
Hey! If any of you new, or old, users started using #Tusky recently and appreciate it, please consider donating a little coin.
Currently our only expense is paying for the work I do, at a set amount each month, and some hosting / domain stuff.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
