On 14th at 21:00 Madrid time we will have a very interesting live:


In this TROM-Cast we will discuss The Internet. What is the Internet and what does it do to our lives? Is it just merely a reflection of our trade-based society, but this time we trade more with our data and attention rather than our currencies?

We are thrilled to have Cory Doctorow. From his Wikipedia page: Cory is a "blogger, journalist, and science fiction author who served as co-editor of the blog Boing Boing. He is an activist in favour of liberalising copyright laws and a proponent of the Creative Commons organization, using some of their licences for his books. Some common themes of his work include digital rights management, file sharing, and post-scarcity economics."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cory_Doctorow

Visit his websites at https://craphound.com/ and https://pluralistic.net/

The live will be available here https://www.tromsite.com/live/ - and now we have a livechat!

Haha. That taking a shit example was really a joke, but I understand what you mean. If you look through a certain perspective, everything becomes interesting and curious.
Here's an interesting video about farts 😁 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt9rvaijpPY

But what I really meant to say with the previous post is that we usually get caught up doing something in life and its normal to forget about stuff like this. Those goosebumps come and go, they're not constant.
Yup I knew it was a joke but I wanted to make a point haha. And oh look, when Vsauce was doing great videos. What happened to him...thx for sharing ;). And I get your point for sure.

Our Invidious instance https://ytb.trom.tf now has an anti-captcha integration which should make it pretty resilient from being blocked. Youtube is the largest video platform out there, so we need a way to access it trade-free. https://ytb.trom.tf lets you do that. You can even create an account in seconds and subscribe to any youtube channel. No ads, no bs, no trackers. Pure video watching! That's the beauty of trade-free! ;)

And as a reminder, for those who do not use TROMjaro (why aren't you!? :) ), you should install this awesome browser extension https://github.com/SimonBrazell/privacy-redirect#get which will replace youtube, google maps, google search, twitter, instagram, reddit, google translate, with trade-free alternatives automatically. And our instances are already added to the list. Take care of your brain because it is the one controlling you ;).

The Bit Player (trailer)


Watch it trade-free at: https://www.videoneat.com/documentaries/22215/the-bit-player/ The Bit Player is a 2019 documentary film created to celebrate the 2016 centenary of the birth of Claude Shannon, the "father of information theory". Claude Elwood Shannon (April 30, 1916 – February 24, 2001) was an American mathematician, electrical engineer, and cryptographer known as "the father of information theory". Shannon is noted for having founded information theory with a landmark paper, "A Mathematical Theory of Communication", which he published in 1948. He is also well known for founding digital circuit design theory in 1937, when—as a 21-year-old master's degree student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)—he wrote his thesis demonstrating that electrical applications of Boolean algebra could construct any logical numerical relationship.[3] Shannon contributed to the field of cryptanalysis for national defense during World War II, including his fundamental work on codebreaking and secure telecommunications.

We've added a new services to our https://trom.tf/ - a simple internet speed test that is trade-free. Here it is https://speed.trom.tf/ - it is not yet visually customized but it is fully working. You should not trade your attention (ads), or unnecessary data while testing your internet speed! ;) #tromlive

Big thanks to those who are still supporting us on LiberaPay or Patreon, monthly and weekly. In these times of being broke, even little donations are making an impact. We keep TROM alive because of these humans. Thank you very much. And if anyone can donate, you can do so here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #tromlive

Alexio reshared this.


Beginning of the month money count for TROM. We are left with around 900 Euros total to run all of our projects. Which is desperately low. We have to pay around 50 Euros a month for hosting, and some 50 for the Internet maybe, in order to keep them. Also, what do we eat? Well....

If you can help us, please make a donation here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Mind you, we provide a ton of tools trade-free for everyone. So if you consider this work as important, and you are able to help, that would be great. https://www.tromsite.com/ + https://www.tromsite.com/tools/

Prison Earth - by Sasha https://videos.trom.tf/videos/watch/955d6be8-d8e7-430b-9079-61043f5f1cae

Video inspired by Sasha's article - https://www.bigworldsmallsasha.com/2020/01/07/prison-earth/ and recorded/edited by Dima https://dmitrylisenko.com/

Welcome to Prison Earth. If you’re a very well-behaved inmate, you might not even realize that you’re locked up. If you never try to step outside, if you never question the guards or the other prisoners, and you do as they all do- work, work, work- slave your life away, and take “vacations” only when they let you, for as long as they let you- you might never even question the prison. You might be numb to it, quietly existing, working in the system, perhaps drinking or taking pills to cope with the lack of meaning in your imprisoned life.

I hope you’re not like that. I hope you question, and take a step outside, at least with your own mind.

20+ more documentaries to add to VN are on the pipeline ;) - several that are very interesting. Will do my best to add them but this month I will be busy with moving to my parents' house (cause I'm broke :D ) - and all that...I am trying to have some more fun with @Aaron these days before he leaves. Tomorrow we plan to go here close where we live, spend a night in nature in the hammocks. See the stars, the water (hopefully we can see some bio-luminescence), make a bbq, talk, and enjoy. The following months will be very challenging for me working on TROM II and changing my working space. So yah, am thinking to simply enjoy this month, whatever is left from it. All trains are working so far, and I am supper happy about that. #tromlive

Our invidious instance ytb.trom.tf is not working currently. It was blocked (possibly by youtube) and we tried to force an upgrade or a fresh install, and both failed because it depends on an old package that is not available anymore. The big is reported. As soon as the developers fix it we will try to install it again. For now we redirect it to https://ytb.alexio.tf - a test server made by @Alexio #tromlive

[list=1][*]Empty homes[/list]


This video is about the ridiculousness of our trade-based society. There are so many empty appartments that are used for only a short period of time or not at all, because it is profitable to do so.

You can read our book "Empty homes for nobody" for a more detailed presentation of this situation: https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6727/1/

We updated Invidious https://ytb.trom.tf/ and this time we won't do many of the visual changes, so that Invidious works well on small screens too. Plus, invidious is like nitter or bibliogram, a way to access these big companies without trading to them. We put more effort into Peertube, Friendica, Nextcloud and the like that are alternative tools to these big companies, rather than a skin. #tromlive

I used to make websites since early 2000 and yah I noticed this change. Websites nowadays are a piece of shit. Full of ads, full of click here, see this, infinite scroll, and all that. Our trade-based society changes websites, products, services, wishes, and minds altogether. There is no escape... #tromlive

I for sure use these and more... but for some websites the RSS is not provided in full, and for some the Firefox reader mode may not work very well. Still, very useful tools!
been loving tools like that on and off but still fall into the deep end at times

have learned it really has to start somewhere else to be truly effective

have to tell myself to take good care of my mental bandwidth before even opening a browser

Wow, that's a massive list. I wasn't expecting that 🙃

I think maybe this is better?
"Trom is about showing\educating that our trade based society is damaging humanity in many ways, and solving this by presenting trade-free goods\services to glide over time into a trade-free society."
I would always try to kinda avoid using the term "trade-free society" since it sounds too utopian. But thanks I get your suggestion ;)

Our latest TROMCast about deplatforming can be watched here https://videos.trom.tf/videos/watch/38a34103-ae53-4e8b-a85a-568ce013e049 or here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/ . It got suddenly interrupted at 1:30 , we do not know why, maybe my (Tio) internet connection dropped for a second. We recorded a second part and merged them all in one single video. Enjoy! #tromlive

TROM-Cast 64: Deplatformed!

We are talking about this new word "deplatforming" and what are the implications of it. How a few companies can mute anyone they want, and what repercussions does it have.

We want to release a trade-free alternative to Unsplash, videoblocks and the like. A huge gallery of free to use videos and photos. We have tested it and so far so great, but for now it will be invitation-only so if there is any of you out there who is passionate about taking photos or making videos, please tell us so we can give you access. All that we will upload there will be free to use for any purposes: trade-free in other words. So, there is your chance to make things just a little better in this world, by taking interesting photos and adding them to our Trade-Free Media directory ;). #tromlive

yes, I could.
Sounds great! I'll get back to you later today or tomorrow with more details. Thanks! ;)

Most people use services like Google, Facebook and the like because its free - you don't have to pay for them. I mean, Google maps and whatsapp don't even have ads on it. You might've also heard that Google chrome is (mostly) open source - Awesome, right ? ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯

Well, these companies are still trading with you. You have to trade your data, attention, time etc. for using their services :(

Let me introduce you to "free as in trade-free" - https://trade-free.org

Our FInteresting category on TROMnews is back! https://tromnews.com/finteresting/ - it is a mix of very interesting SubReddits, such as Showerthoughts, Data Is Beautiful, Ask Science, Today I Learned or Explain Like Im Five. The great part is that we use teddit for the job, a trade-free reddit browser. So when users click any of the cards in FInteresting, they can read the post and comments in a trade-free way. Awesome! If Teddit will become a @yunohost package we will implement it on our trom.tf ;). We would like to do the same for our curated videos and pull them from our Invidious instance. We could do that, but out plugin does not support pulling feeds from Atom, only from RSS and Invidious only offers Atom feeds. If you know any other very interesting SubReddits let us know. #tromlive

Future is FOSS reshared this.

You could also use https://libredd.it instead of teddit for a more modern view
They do not provide an RSS feed https://github.com/spikecodes/libreddit/issues/27 - and teddit's RSS is very robust it seems. We need that to pull the items to our newsfeed.

Great documentary! Highly recommend it! 8 hours of fun-history about how money pretty much influences everything. Ideas like communism, socialism, capitalism, whatever ism, and theories about left, right, democracy and so on, are useless. Money drives the world. Or, if you are clever, replace "money" with "trade" so you encompass all of the trades: cryptocurrencies, direct trades, laws and social credits, data collection or the attention economy, and so forth. Yah so Curtis talks about what we are voicing for years now. But the explanation with trade makes a lot more sense and is easier to understand and do something about. I recommend this documentary! #tromlive
