Ideas

More tech: - Critic of cloud computing and ICT environment - The invisibility of the cloud, it is actually made of very real and physical components - How the invisibility of the Cloud is contributing to the environment destruction - Datacenter energy usage, how much it is fossil fuels - Are datacenters really carbon neutral? - Elastic computing and storage fuels eternal economic growth - IT people must understand their responsibility when working on global scale systems Social: - People should be aware of their responsibility as Internet users - Eternal economic growth leads to massive natural resource consumption, and eventually mass extinction - Capital accumulation leads to increasingly inequality and social struggles
