The ‘frugal computing’ movement is built on the understanding that computing resources are finite, precious, and to be used only when absolutely necessary and in the most efficient ways possible.

This is really interesting, though it's like the grim side of solarpunk haha

@neauoire There's an enormous amount of room between "finite" and "precious," and computing cycles are much, much cheaper than they used to be. I think it's important to be cost-conscious, but that means having some idea what the costs are. Which means using numbers.

@neauoire Even without scarcity, elegant use of computing resources has a certain... karmic attraction to it.
