@wim_v12e thanks for writing this eye(further)opening article!
the environmental impact of computing is one of the reasons why I struggele with pursuing an "IT-career"
On one side i am amazed about what is possible and like to tinker arround with hard&software but on the other aide i am just scared how carelessly most IT-folks are showing off with their always bleeding edge hardware and litterally throwing it arround or abusing it with totally useless inefficcent software.
@glowl Thanks for reading it! There is really a huge need for change in attitude on all sides: manufactures, tech companies, IT people and end users. I am a computing scientists so I work on the technical side but the sociological and economical aspects are actually more important.
@wim_v12e if i find the time i would like to translate the article into german, i know a few people who could benefit from reading it but aren't particularly fluent in english.
would that be ok for you?
@glowl Yes of course. My German is not good enough to write it but I'll be able to read the translation just fine. Thanks!
