comment What is a noun that means “the skill of being able to use technology efficiently?”
I find it very difficult to link 'wizard' or 'guru' with computers. It is certainly not self-evident, unlike 'techie'.

@Mari-LouA Done! I'm just a bit afraid it becomes too localized.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
I am surprised though that there seems to be no good generic term for this. In my native language I cannot think of one either.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
Domain: Scientific article about P2P/Bittorrent networks, in particular the percentage of blocks available to all (non-seeding) peers in a network, often with availability < 100%. High values indicate that the network has been seedless or with slow seeds for a long time, possibly abandoned, even though it seems nice at first to have all present blocks shared by all clients.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
For clarification: It would be nice if the term could include the distinction you explained, but it is not required. The most important factor is "locally improving while (as a sign/consequence of) globally stagnantion".
