“storage is cheap” - more please
clouds don't actually help here!
Targets: only store what we need.
Throw data away. Store on the least energy-intensive device
Why are you building an app?
changing the world?
saving the Earth?
don't build that thing – build that other thing that's more useful
switch it off, or get it to switch other things off
use virtual servers/ clouds (scale dynamically with load)
optimise, refactor, be smarter, be elegant, less brute force, monitor
slow cook computing
write energy efficient code
watch Age of Stupid, Wall+E and Idiocracy
more function, less form
Yet Another Reason to
KILL ALL FLASH?
change procurement cycles (watch Government)
“clean energy” data centres
“just in time” provisioning
low-level languages (machine code in the cloud?)
make your app self-aware of its energy. disclose it.
make your app's users self-aware of the app's consumption
make your users self-aware of their own consumption
build bots that will
hoover up our
digital detritus 101101010101010101001
make things that encourage less use
make things that encourage low-carbon/low-energy behaviour
encourage smarter movement (e.g. dopplr)
video conferencing – change habits
please could we have a better Webex? a more efficient Second Life?
(A Second Life citizen has the same foot print as the average Brazillian)
give everything an energy identity
build “smart-grid” behaviour into everything
build what comes next
share it :: be disruptive :: rethink it from the ground up
Building Power portability around
the user's data.
AMEE is the neutral
“3rd place” that allows
data to be passed up,
Building Smart down, and across,
the supply chain.
the data it holds
to maintain privacy.
In this example, a GPS-
enabled mobile phone
Travel Service Mobile service can derive the mode of
(dopplr.com) (FireEagle) transport.
Using AMEE as the
trusted 3rd party, it could
Locative Mobile pass that information to
dopplr.com, a social
community phone network based around
Make energy YOUR performance metric
Shut down power stations
Re-invent the (power) grid(s)
Reduce all travel
Measure and visualise all of it
we don't just need change
we need systematic redesign
of the future
