The Web Ecology Community Group has been launched:
The purpose of this group should be to discuss anything that could enhance the web and reduce its impact on environment. Discussion could be about, for example:
- Improving efficiency of apis
- Reducing data consumption
- Upgrading apis to make them less greedy in energy
Millions of kilowatts are wasted in the world each year because of various reasons, such as:
- Bad algorithms
- Data storing (ex : spams)
- Wrong processes
Any idea that could make the web more respectful for environment is welcome to this group.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2020-12-14 by Medhi Hanai. The following people supported its creation: Medhi Hanai, Frank Corsi, Ivan Herman, Jindřich Kolman, Atrthit Kosachunhanun. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
