Can the Internet Survive Climate Change?
On the energy consumption of the internet with a nice feature of the solar version of #LowTech Magazine that I worked on.
"It is the largest coal-fired machine on the entire planet, accounting for 10 percent of global electricity demand. And the internet’s #climate impact is only going to get worse: Around half of the world has yet to log on—a presently disconnected population of more than three billion people eager to begin streaming videos and updating Facebook accounts. The internet’s cut of the world’s electricity demand will likely rise to 20 percent or more by 2030, at which point it will produce more carbon than any country except China, India, and the United States.

As we're slowly recovering from the pre-opening of the renovated centre, here's a look back at our previous opening, in 2007, when we moved in to the Quai des Charbonnages
(the main @imal account has been a little quiet so far but I'll take care of it for now, so expect more posts)
A new website, with a new CMS (Kirby) is online! https://www.imal.org
It's a quick version focused on the opening, that'll be developed further and expanded into a full-fledged version early 2020.

Each symbol that constitutes the new iMAL logo developed by Vrints-Kolsteren represents a certain field/topic/activity of the centre. For example is for the FabLab, or for workshops.
I think that's a good fit for custom emojis 😁 ( cc: @xavor )
