This kinopio space is serving extremely well as a personal page for me now. Today I was able to finish this little project I've been thinking about doing for a while and craft my little personal online space, I plan to keep it updated: kinopio.club/ana-luisa-figueir 🧄

Calculating the Carbon Footprint of Streaming Media: Beyond the Myth of Efficiency findings

* 90% of the energy used for a device is spent in producing it i.e. before you touch it
* 1 hour netflix is equiv. to burning 200g coal
* or driving ~2km (1.4-1.8)
* 0.8kWh in energy use per (video) stream seems to be a useful metric to measure against
* energy use for a laptop is roughly 30x less demanding than a desktop pc?! incl. manufacturing energy

Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

This week's newsletter is out! 🥒 I didn't have a lot of time this week so I've done some double feature recommendations, including Moonlight and 1953 short documentary Statues Also Die: buttondown.email/cucumbersalad

Got some Kinopio stickers on the mail today! With a very nice and kind handwritten letter as well 😭 💌

Finally vibing to music again after almost 4 years feeling disconnected from it... into electronic/instrumental and accepting recommendations. Now playing: It All Feels Right by Washed Out

Warm weather is so good you can just wear shorts and eat fruit the whole day... happy about it

Spent the last 6 mins stressy because I couldn't find my green skirt to make a guava colour theme outfit to go to the supermarket... I am sane.

Searching where to buy some Yakult in Switzerland and stumbled upon this LOVELY picture of their first packaging... precious.

Patiently but also impatiently waiting for @handle to give me their review of EEOAA

Finally recovering my skin texture after British weather + COVID damage 🙏 cheers to consistency!

The 4th edition of my Cucumber Salad Weekly 🥒 newsletter is out! On this edition I'm discussing the 1962 animation Bathhouse, adapted from a play by Vladmir Mayakovsky. Here's the link: buttondown.email/cucumbersalad

Had a dream about having a tamagotchi last night. I was very happy, excited about naming it… the interface was super cute… it pooped a lot lol and I was looking forward to wearing it as necklace because of “turning red” lol shame

“To us, it looks like one big pot of soup out there,” said Karen Osborn, a zoologist and curator of marine worms and crustaceans at the museum. “You can put a sensor down in the water and pick up millimeter-thick layers in the ocean, and there are animals that are keyed in on that layer,”? Nice article on zooplankton, inspiring little creatures smithsonianmag.com/blogs/natio . Also some very Y2K specimens…

I was invited to publish (another!) Kinopio Guide! This time on my skincare space: help.kinopio.club/guides/plan-
