This is so cool: A global computer network where nodes are available when there is sun 🌥️⛅🌤️https://computingwithinlimits.org/2022/papers/limits22-final-Brain.pdf
Let's start a solar node alliance!
@adz it's a thought-provoking project! last time i checked it was more of an art project and limited to only serving the project website, is that still unchanged?
@cblgh Yes, it looks like it is still serving "only" the projects website (the whole tooling and networking is already quite cool though), but maybe its the perfect platform to build upon - maybe a "Peachcloud-ish" backbone solar network across different timezones, not as the only nodes but to support other "regular" nodes on the edges. Tried to make a small diagram 😅
@adz While watching SolariseCon I found out about a shop where they drive their motors directly from solar panels without batteries or complex controller circuits. It's interesting to think about machining in relationship with the condition of clouds and time of day.
A fediverse community for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
