This year we have been reading a lot about web/computing. It's really inspiring to see the variety of initiatives going in different directions. For the end of the year, it's time to share some of them 🙂

@pikselkraft long lasting computers is something I try to do. it would work for the most part if it weren't for web developers shoving more and more crap onto the client

email, LaTeX, RSS, XMPP etc only require very modest computing resources. the web by contrast just fills me with rage. there's a few nice lightweight sites in a sea of bloat

@pikselkraft this article mirrors a bunch of things I have been desiring/working toward for about 10 years. Awesome. Also, considering p2p and always-on internet that might be needed for that, I wonder if we could just turn the internet on only for 5 minutes an hour or something, queue our requests, sit back and wait for the delivery. Cut all the resource usage down 95%? :p Or maybe super low power/bandwidth scheduling like via QRP 20m/40m so that just the peers that need something will turn on and sync.
