Space for computers and digital technologies in degrowth?


An article explaining that microelectronic products cannot be produced locally (at least in the foreseable future) but that, even for supporters of degrowth, it wouldn’t make sense to give up computers for such a reason: the right thing to do is use them responsibly to avoid waste, using, among other things, open file formats and Free as in Freedom software. In 2008 I also wrote on the same topic, some Thoughts on P2P production and deployment of physical objects.
