I missed the actual day, but Wordpress as a publishing platform just turned 18 years old. Very cool. https://wordpress.org/news/2021/05/wordpress-at-18/
The footprint of those is surely going to become an issue going forward, that's explains marquee pre-emptive actions to link them to renewables.
The question is whether intrinsically (and ceteris paribus) #decentralization consumes less (because traffic remains more localized)
