So, there's a constellation of concepts around web stuff that we all seem to care about: low- or no-JS, minimalism, brutalism, RSS, organic (as opposed to algorithmic) discovery, decentralization, offline-first, ownership and control of data, anti-telemetry-ism, etc. What are some terms or movements or design principles that encapsulate these ideas?
@jrc03c @neauoire there was a decent thread around this a while ago, and while there wasn't a consenus there were a few interesting suggestions and a really lovely debate on the merits of the proposals. The ones I particularly like were variants on "smol computing", and "respectful computing"
I've adopted the latter (NB: I might have been the one to propose it? I can't remember for sure, but if so that would certainly be a bias), because I think it escapsulates the ideas of respect for users (data, time, resources), our communities (sustainability etc.), and so on.
