An effort to bring the values and benefits of Old and Small Technology to the modern Web. That is, using the existing web technologies in a way that makes the web small.
The Small Technology Foundation has been working on this and describes it.
Small Web Ideas
- Low-tech magazine has a solar-powered website, and they talk extensively about how to design a website in such a way that it requires minimal power to host.
- The 10 KB Club, 250 KB club, and 1MB Club honor websites with small overall load sizes.
- Text-Only Websites lists websites that primarily stick with simple text.

Old technology is any tech that’s, well… old.
