What's the best umbrella term for tech that aims at a lower environmental impact (hardware, software and network traffic) and respects privacy?

@calcifer posted about this in December, resulting in an interesting thread. Now I'm writing about it and could use some help deciding on a single term :)

As a first step towards lessening my networked experiments impact on the planet, I decided to go for temporary publishing. My server is simply not always on.

These 4 were my favorites, but the thread listed many more: heirloom computing, retrocomputing, respectful computing, minimal computing, as little tech as possible, solar punk, permatech. All great! What do?

So, after one year of read-write time about computers I thought of having a Mastodon première of The User Condition, a looong text on computer agency and behavior. Here's the link, enjoy:

Of course I'm profoundly grateful for the help that I received from all of you people here (check acknowledgements at the bottom).

Needless to say, I welcome feedback, criticism, bug/misspells reports and whatever else comes to mind :)
