Permacomputing is the practice of developing computation resources for long-term or generational usage. The [[Small Web]] can be seen as permacomputing applied to web architecture.
Also, in decentralized "post-collapse" societies, the local all-around experts ("village hackers") should be able to master all aspects of the local computing systems in order to maintain them and to adapt them to various local needs.1

Marloes de Valk in [A pluriverse of local worlds: a review of Computing within Limits related terminology and practice] identified a wide discourse around radical computing practices focused around responding to the climate crisis, capitalist excess, and the creation of diverse hacker practices for low-powered, distributed, and computing. On Mastodon, they polled for a common term to cover this with "[[permacomputing]]" and "small tech" each splitting a third of the vote. Many of these solutions are also relevant to [[solarpunk]].
