One is a billionaire who is selling all of his books, the other one is a quite-broke human who has the courage and decency to provide her book online for free. Trade-Free. No ads, no data collection, no subscribe-here-to-read bullshit.

That's the world in which we live. The ones who make a fortune are trained and incentivized to not even share their "must read" books for free, despite having so much wealth.

Oh look, Bill Gates released a book about "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster"! It must be important.... so it is worth 18$ to read.

Grab @Sasha 's book from here https://www.bigworldsmallsasha.com/book/ - she also talks a lot about Climate Change, solutions, and a new kind of worldview.

I would never take climate advice from Bill Gates or any billionaire for that matter.
in reply to TROM

does Bill yet again promote nuclear power which is expensive and can be controlled by the few? Or has he learned that renewables are the way.

Eugene doesn't like this.

mastodon has what, 15 million users ?
hard to say with twitter, but FB is so much larger we aren't even round off error
and , at least in biological science, most people are still on twitter

so why do you think anyone will care ?
aside from you and me and one or two others ?

I for one started to care more when my videos started to be banned on those platforms, alongside some of my posts. Videos and posts that were educational and I never made any money off of them. So I, being hurt, started to care more about using other platforms. Thus, pain. That combined with my understanding about how these platforms like ytb, twitter, fb and the like operate, that they are in fact businesses/markets and not "networks".

So I think that's one way for people to start to care about changing some of their digital habits: to be extremely pissed off at those platforms, while at the same time have some curiosity to try something different.

It is very difficult, but from my experience what works is to be an example. I moved and gave no fucks about the other platforms so if anyone wanted to follow our TROM project or me, they had no choice but to move too. I made a bunch of people switch to these other alternatives.

The plastic industry knowingly pushed recycling myth for decades, new report finds https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/the-plastic-industry-knowingly-pushed-recycling-myth-for-decades-new-report-finds

Of course...one must be very skeptical when the companies producing plastic are so keen about "recycling". Of course they like these programs even if they do not work (which is the case today) since it allows them to produce more plastic and make more profits.

Recycling is only relevant when there is not a huge incentive to produce waste in the first place.

The fact that humans have weapons that are meant to kill their own kind, is a sign of primitivism. It is a sign of a failed society. Regardless if they even use them or not.

If we cannot solve conflicts within our human society without killing other humans, then we are a failure. That, in a situation in which we have more than enough resources to provide everyone with whatever they need and most of what they want.

Shame on humans!

It seems that because Google banned our server IP (our invidious instance was a threat for them it seems) now you cannot import videos from Youtube to our Peertube. Endless issues. And for what!? For allowing people to watch Youtube videos without the crap hat Youtube adds on top of them.

Anyway, we need to seek for a solution. This is not a disaster by any means, but it is another warning sign of what these big companies are doing. All they want is to play the game of trade, because they are winning at it. So Youtube pretends to be a video platform, and thus we say: Cool, we installed this Youtube interface to allow people to watch the videos from your video platform, without all of the bloat. But Youtube is like "Whaaaat!? Nah! We NEED people to watch our ads, and we need to collect their data and make them give us their currencies!".

Because, you guessed it, Youtube is not a video platform. Videos are just a way to serve you ads. Youtube is an AD PLATFORM.

100%. Probably our Teddit instance will also get fucked....luckily the devs behind Invidious and Teddit are working to bypass these stupidities. Problem is Youtube totally owns the video space....So in a way or another we kinda depend on it for now....

Youtube and Reddit has a lot of good content on it, would be very sad if we lose access to that. The biggest problem is that most of the content on the internet is centralized on a few servers where these big tech companies hold them as hostage for controlling how people get to access that info (forcefully make us use their apps, create an account on their website, etc).

Thank you for writing such thoughtful pieces, the world desperately needs to hear these words.

Wow, thank you for sharing that YouTube video. Documentaries about BS conspiracy theories are the worst, its hilarious seeing these people trying to come up with various "explanations" just to cover up the holes in their theory.


Schools are not for learning.


in reply to TROM

One of the most asked questions in class is "Will this be on the test?", schools were never about education or learning new things......

A Child with a Fatal Disease that's "Not Profitable to Cure" https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=BA5UEkBOAOw

In a trade-based society it mainly, of not entirely, matters what's the value of a trade. If you can trade it, you have the go ahead. If it is not profitable to trade it or you cannot trade it, then it does not have any value.

We should be able to design a better society where the incentive is to help others, progress, protect, discover, rather than a mindless "trade trade trade".

Its horrifying to hear that there are 200 to 300 children suffering from this disease and still no one's trying to help find a cure for it just because its not profitable. Its so sad that our world works this way.

Carbon Offsets: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=6p8zAbFKpW0

Trade trade, trade trade, trade trade....as long as we are compelled and trained to trade, that's our priority. Does not matter if it is a company or an individual. #TradeRuinsEverything #tromlive

@TROM
Thanks a lot for sharing that video, its very informative. I've heard before that these so called "Carbon Offsets" were a scam, but I didn't know they were this much harmful and outright ridiculous. I should've known, because how can you use trades to solve an issue that has been created by this trade based society in the first place!?

And all of these companies showing you ads saying "Zero carbon footprint", please don't fall for that BS. You can't "undo your emissions" by throwing money at it 🤦

That was meant for media that would be trade-free an anyone can use. However for one we didn't find a good software to host that...and second it takes a lot of time and resources to do such a website...maybe in the future we will...for now we can't.

TROM
It is still a project that we think about and we have not filly abandoned...but too many things under the TROM umbrella. It is quite a challenge to maintain everything at this point. Maybe after the TROM II documentary is released we can look again into this. I'd love to see such a website.
