LOW TECH WEBRING DIRECTORY

If you've reached this page, you have probably already visited a site on the LOW TECH WEBRING. Welcome! This webring is for homepages of people who are interested in low tech, small game tools, and other forms of Web 1.0 inspired creativity. My name's Em, and I started this webring because I was inspired Olia Lialina's work documenting Geocities communities, Kris De Decker's work at LOW←TECH Magazine, and my own internet childhood.

To sum up the ethos of this webring, I'd like to quote from an interview with Kris De Decker:

It’s clear that it’s something intrinsic to web designers, this desire to build better things, because it’s not just that the typical website uses a lot of energy, it’s also just a horrible thing. It’s not fun to be on the internet anymore, at least not like it used to be, in the sense that these days, you open a website, you get a cookie warning, then you get some privacy thing that you have to click away, then you get the newsletter, then you get the ads in your face, and then by the time you get to the content, you have already lost your interest.

Maybe we should not only focus on the energy use but also simply on creating a website that shows what I want to read and that loads fast and that doesn’t bother me with all these questions.

So, please have fun on our webring!

April 2021 Update!: This webring has gotten pretty large (though I do like all the sites on it!) and I am wondering if the current format is the best way of showcasing all of these sites, or if the workload of maintaining it as it gets bigger/more popular is something I can keep up with. Therefore, I don't have a particular date in mind for adding a new set of sites right now. Do feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions, a cool website you think I'd like, or ideas for the future forms this webring would take. I'd like to eventually get as many of its members as possible together to discuss any ideas or changes we might eventually make.

October 2020 Update!: Our webring is now powered by Onionring (thanks!). This will make updates easier and not require the last person on the ring to change their banner, though your existing banners and banner codes will still work if you are already on the ring. Visit the link for more information on how to customize the appearance of the banner on your site. This is how it will look by deafult:

Alexis Ong's Site

candle's Site


Content rules are pretty simple and for the safety of everyone who would want to use the webring: nothing that would need to be under an 18+ warning visible from the front page and clearly marked if it is present, and no hate speech or similar.

If you would like to join LOW TECH WEBRING, e-mail me including your site's URL and how you would like your name included in the directory, and I will respond with the banner code to paste on your homepage as soon as I process the next batch, which may be a while (see April 2021 Update).

Thank you for your interest, and enjoy your time browsing the LOW TECH WEBRING!
