@eloisa I am trying to raise awareness about the need for "frugal" computing, doing more with less, making our devices last much longer.
Here is my article about it:
Are there scientific conferences, or journals, that would welcome a paper on a living documentation experience?
(Living documentation is the engineering of approaches that allow the documentation of a system to evolve and stay in sync with the system it describes.)

I finally had the opportunity to listen carefully to "Crimson Blade", and there is so much to like in that song. The melody has a rousing, anthem-like quality. I very much like the two sung voices, and the presence of the synthesiser/organ in the background. I really marvel at the drumming (and the guitars too)! This would be an awesome song to see performed live!
Somewhere in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there is an ancient Commodore Amiga that is hard at work. For over a quarter century it has been controlling the heat and air conditioning at 19 different schools and running nonstop. It's still kicking, for now anyway.
Years ago, I wrote this article about the many reasons to cook food in the microwave.
"The most underrated kitchen appliance"
The books also make you really question any assumptions about what it means to be human and how much can be forgiven.
Meanwhile, I have finished the entire Broken Earth trilogy, twice, and even then I felt compelled to re-read parts of the first book again.
Every part of this trilogy is really very, very good.
Apart from the themes I mentioned, I also very much like how the history of the world is handled, through what the characters remember of what they have been taught, complemented with fragments of lore and stories. I like in particular that we gradually find out how much of that history is wrong.
