Solar Powered Website #22
Low-tech Magazine questions the belief in technological progress, and highlights the potential of past knowledge and technologies for designing a sustainable society. In this talk we present https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com, a radical redesign of the blog that is self-hosted on a solar-powered server.
This talk will review the design and technical considerations behind the redesign. This includes highlighting its functional benefits, such as archivability and accessibility, as well as its design approach to make the infrastructure powering the site more transparent.
