A provocative read from Low-Tech Magazine, "Why We Need a Speed Limit for the Internet," on the unsustainable energy consumption of today's internet: https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2015/10/can-the-internet-run-on-renewable-energy.html
#introductions Hello! I’m currently a high school student in my sophomore year. My pronouns are she/her. I enjoy reading about interdisciplinary fields in STEM and art. I have interests in environmentalism, government systems, international relations, socioeconomics, and social justice. I’m also a Linux and FOSS enthusiast.
Scaring off people we don't want here
There's a bunch of new people here recently, so I think I'll say a few things that will scare off many of the sorts of people that we don't want here
It is the official policy of scholar.social that:
🍍 Nazis should have their speech curtailed at every opportunity
🍍 Supporters of Jordan Peterson or Milo Yiannopoulos—leave now
🍍 There is no such thing as "reverse racism"
🍍 Vaccines don't cause autism, and for that matter, autistic people are equally valuable!
I’m an advocate for environmentalism and social justice. I also have interdisciplinary passions in STEM-related and artistic fields.
