This September we return to the digital utopianism of Web 1.0 and the first wave of personal computers during a Permacomputing Meetup on Thursday 21 September.
ICYMI: Permacomputing is “a philosophy applying ecological and long term thinking to computers” - a topic increasingly relevant in these contemporary times of unbalanced sustainability models and energy-intensive computing.
Would you consider a Permacomputing approach to your everyday life? Or to your artistic/academic practice? Wondering why you would even want to? And are you “hard wearing” your hardware at all, or throwing it out after a few years? Guest speaker Rein van der Woerd will dive into the broader topic of Permacomputing, discuss the circularity of our hardware and give a demonstration of its marvellous possibilities.
How far can we compress the footprint of our code by cramming it into a tiny space? Freddy Offenga aka F#READY (https://demozoo.org/sceners/35273/) has curated a selection of videos from the demo scene and will show his own take on “sizecoding”.
As this is a meetup, anyone is welcome to step up and share their projects. So, what else is on the programme? Who knows! Rest assured that we’ll end the night with a proper Live Code Jam, open podium!
More material on the matter: At last year’s creative coding symposium Iterations, Brendan Howell & Aymeric Mansoux presented their take on permacomputing; a more sustainable approach to computer & network technology inspired by permaculture: https://www.youtube.com/live/xgZtnmpNV40?t=4693
