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 :)
https://www.tree.fm/ lets you listen to recording from random forests around the world. It's very nicely presented, Some of the recordings have faint traffic noise in the background, which ruins the effect a little, but is probably just the unavoidable reality for many of these places
https://sundaysites.cafe is a really cool idea & *such* a great vibe

"The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other."
- Osho in Love, Freedom and Aloneness

I’ve been thinking of fixing my setup, not just physically, but digitally, especially to lessen distraction (hi, short attention span and instant gratification). I catch myself becoming antsy and impatient when I spend too much time on one thing and then proceed to check terrible social media or fiddling with my phone (for more social media 😫); what has helped you stay focused? Do you have any tools or hacks you use?
In my meditation I also felt that while I needed to take action, I should also learn to slow down. I won’t get everything done, but keep going anyway and just keep going one step at a time.
I did a “Year Compass” exercise, and the word that came up for 2021 was “initialise”, or basically: just do the thing. Coincidentally, I drew the first tarot card for the year and what came up literally said “Just Do The Work”. I hope to be more action-oriented instead of plan-oriented (i.e. wishful thinking) and execute ideas, dreams, projects!
Lady, if a man tries to bother you, you can think blue, count two, and look for a red shoe.
