The first part of the TROM II Documentary, Humans, is fully translated into Spanish https://videos.trom.tf/w/uzkzwYtn1XK2EyYGbowovY thanks to @Rafa Peris and Vicky! If you want to help with the translations please head over to our Translations chat on Matrix https://matrix.to/#/#translation:matrix.trom.tf

TROM II: 1. Humans


What does Romania, Russia, Latvia, Germany, and the United States have in common? A planet, and the human imagination. We imagine borders, nationalities, and differences. In truth we are all very much the same. We grow up in a culture, we watch the same TV, listen to the same music, follow similar traditions. We are "educated" and "trained" by institutions that are rarely questioned by the masses.

So how does a newborn human become someone in this culture of humans? And how does the human-invented world contrast with the vast universe we are part of?

Hello people,

I (Tio) had a great time in Prague at the ZDay event, and I made a blog post all about it, here - https://www.tiotrom.com/2023/09/the-zday-experience/ - it is a big blog post, because it was a big and wonderful experience.

Wow thank you so much for the 260 Euros donation dear anonymous donor!

We really need support now because we work hard to move our servers to a different location for multiple reasons. But basically we are forced to. So we have to pay a lot more money to move them. But we plan to provide more storage space for TROM Files and maybe more services via TROM.tf too. We are expanding!

If you can support us please do so here - https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Thank you so much SomeOrdinaryDude for the 50 Euros donation! Much much appreciated! While in the long run we need the 200 for TROM campaign to succeed, anyone can still send one time donations from the same page - scroll to the bottom.

We are in the process of trying to find a long term solution for our TROM.tf. Mostly in terms of diskspace since we are running low on that. So any financial help is much much appreciated!

Thank you!

We are working on an improved ZDay presentation with a much better audio and footage from a secondary camera. So that you know ;) . We understand that the current video has a very bad audio, but we didn't know that they would not record directly from the mic. Else we would have used a lav-mic. Anyway, we should release an enhanced presentation in less than a week. #tromlive

TROM Files now has a wonderful calendar app https://files.trom.tf - you can even integrate it with your local apps. Import from your trade-based services into this trade free calendar!

Our Friendica is now super fast, same is for our Matrix! So TROM Social and TROM Chat seem to work great now!

See all of our trade-free services at https://trom.tf/

Fixed. That was a very bad mistake! :D - Thanks!


We have updated our Friendica but the Network (newsfeed) seems to be slow to load for some accounts. If you experience slowness please let us know. #tromlive

Roma reshared this.


The plans for the next weeks:

- Update our Friendica and test to make sure everything works fine
- Move our Peertube storage to an object storage so we free up space on our server. Currently we are at the limit when it comes to storage. Using an object storage allows us to scale up.
- Add Pixelfed to our TROM.tf services
- Release a new TROMjaro

All of these require a lot of time and resources. So it make take more than just weeks.

If you can support this work and can donate 5 Euros a month, maybe you can join the 200 for TROM https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - currently there are some 30 people supporting us and we only need 170 more to make TROM forever sustainable ๐Ÿ˜€

Our ZDay presentation is now translated into 4 languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Czech and Catalan https://videos.trom.tf/w/d5wwwrwGD7D3EE2BuTw6uT

Kudos to the people who are translating these TROM videos without anyone asking them to do so or how to do it. At TROM we work in this decentralized and more emerging style: people can get involved with whatever they can, and do it on their own.

We only provide some tools and platforms, like our Translation Matrix chat https://matrix.to/#/#translation:matrix.trom.tf

Amazing people. One of them actually, Lenka, we meet at ZDay. She came because of TROM and she quickly became our friend.

Now she made the Czech subtitle for the presentation and she wants to work on the entire TROM II documentary to subtitle it into Czech. Awesome people!

If Jesus or Superman were to exist in today's society, they would not be able to survive just by doing good things, by helping others and so forth. They would have to become social media influencers:

Sell their own shampoo line, advertise for companies...

We will work on the presentation recordings these days and we will make it available soon. These past 2 days were really amazing and have spark new friendships and relationships, and new ideas about what we can do in the future. We may even do a Trade-Free Yearly event, but let's see, it is a raw and wild idea now. #tromlive

Tomorrow we are at ZDay in Prague. Tio will present TROM with the focus on why trade is the origin of most problems and why creating trade-free goods and services is so crucial.

We will try to post photos and videos over here to our Friendica page. So stay tuned!

TROM II is now fully translated into Romanian thanks to @Georgi who worked like crazy for the past months to do it.

It is particularly difficult to translate into Romanian because this language comes in 2 main flavors: the official language and the language that people normally speak. And there can be a big difference between the two.

Georgi tried as much as possible to translate in a way that people talk and not in this official robot-like way. She used Kdenlive for the entire translation process.

Huge amount of work!

Watch it here https://www.tromsite.com/documentaries/trom2/ !

Tio:

I kinda finished the presentation for ZDay! ๐Ÿ˜€ Am happy with it. Around 40 minutes long and I tried to make it fun and interesting and put things in a different perspective from what I did in our previous TROM materials. So even those familiar with TROM may find it, I hope, interesting.

75 slides, and a lot of animated stuff ๐Ÿ˜€. I LOVE LibreOffice Presentations. Trade-Free software at its best. You can make some really cool presentations with it.

Half the talk will be about what our society is made of. You know, trade...and how it influences everything. The other half is about our trade-free approach. I will also explain The Fediverse, will talk about TROMjaro and our other tools.

These days I need to get ready for the trip. How awesome that I now have a good laptop that I can take with me, thanks mostly to Roma and Gui who donated money so that I can buy it. I definitely use it mostly for TROM.

That's all. I kinda struggled with this presentation and I worked on it quite a lot. But now that it is done I am relieved ;).

Our TROM Call has been restored because we figured out why it stopped working after a while - https://call.trom.tf/

TROM Call (Jitsi) is a complete Zoom alternative, but a lot better because there are no restrictions. No registrations needed, no participants limit or duration of the call. Plus a lot more features.

We hope that now it will work well. Give it a try! #tromlive

15 people are already helping us achieve the 200 for TROM donation campaign - https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Mind you this approach may take some time to achieve, but we have to in order to keep TROM alive and sustainable. Only 5 Euros donations are accepted, so that we can spread the load on 200 people in order to make sure that we get this support for a long long time, and that we do not put any pressure on any individual to donate a large amount of money.

Please, consider donating 2 cups of coffee to TROM and the so many projects we have.

Bitching about billionaires is stupid


reshared this

@trom

> When Bezos launched his small business in the early 1990 he was praised for making books available for more people.

This makes me wonder how many small businesses there are today that are being praised by everyone, people only seem to notice the problem with these businesses when they get too big, not realizing that if you kill one big business then there are hundreds if not thousands ready to replace that one.

> We need to make companies and billionaires obsolete. Because what Google and the like fear the most is not the competition (because they can buy that), but becoming irrelevant. When people do not see any value in what they "sell", in what they "do".

Right on point here, we should try to create a world where we don't have to rely on any kind of businesses to get our things done, instead of replacing one business with another.

Our Teddit instance was removed form TROM.tf following the Reddit's API limitations that killed pretty much all apps and instances that tried to provide a clean trade-free interface to Reddit. Reddit, like all companies, want to keep their assets for themselves because that brings them more profits, more trade advantages. And their asset is....people, their posts, their data, their eyeballs.

Anyway, perhaps it is a better idea to not use Reddit anyway.

Our Nitter instance works again thanks to some magic that the developers have done. We rely on it for our Illustrations part of TROMnews https://tromnews.com/illustrations/ and generally for RSS purposes. Twitter is trying hard to not let anyone use their "assets" (website) without being logged in, tracked, abused with ads, or pay a membership on the website. Trade-Incentives.

Ok so we are happy that https://bird.trom.tf/ is working again. However for how long no one knows probably. #tromlive
