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."

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!

By the end of this year we will close down https://www.musikwave.com/ . The website is not updated in years and may not work properly anymore. We will redirect/link to a post where we showcase better alternatives to listen to music for free, don't worry. Please save your music collection. We will better use that hosting money to improve our tromsite.com server that is reaching its limits quite often now. #tromlive

180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless

180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless, or simply 180° South, is a 2010 documentary directed by Chris Malloy that covers the journey of Jeff Johnson as he travels from Ventura, California to Patagonia, Chile. He retraces the 1968 trip that Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins took in their Ford E-Series Econoline Van with the end goal of climbing Fitz Roy, one of the more difficult climbs in the Andes.

Look at these ones, so much "biodiversity". Females, males, different colors....

All corrupted https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/10/4/pandora-papers-expose-world-leaders-hidden-wealth

We don't need more women in politics, or people of different "races", as if there is more than one human race. We need no politics at all. We need to understand what creates bad behaviors and try to prevent that. And it is quite simple: treat people like you treat dogs in more developed countries. Take care of them. Make sure they are fed, have enough free time, access to at least their basic needs. All trade-free. And then they will become better humans and we can change our society for the better. #tromimg

Now the interview Joey did with Tio, about the idea of trade-free, is available as trade-free at https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#other or directly at https://videos.trom.tf/w/jRegX83cVsPQsm5ZftYEip

You do not have to trade your attention in order to listen to it.

Thank you Joey, again, for the interview! #tromlive

Huge thank you to the people who are still supporting us financially! If anyone can support us please see https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

We are furiously working on a new TROMjaro Linux based on XFCE so that our linux distribution will become more stable, much faster, and we are adding new cool features to it. We have a scheduled podcast with Cory Doctorow, we work on the TROM II documentary, we keep videoneat.com and all of the other projects up to date and relevant. We provide a lot of trade-free services at trom.tf, and so forth.

If you think that what we do is worth helping, please consider a donation so we can keep paying for our servers and keep ourselves afloat.

Thanks!

The Money Game and Beyond - Moving Stuff and People Around - Part 4
https://videos.trom.tf/w/x1GdbLwQAHyEEdggAHvbtT

In our world there is a big misunderstanding about efficiency. Since our society is based on trade, things will be done by whatever is cost efficient and not resource efficient or technical efficient. That means apples are grown in New Zealand and shipped to Germany for example. Soy is grown in Brazil then shipped to Germany to feed pigs and that meat is then exported into other tribes. This and so many other trades lead to a world wide frenzy which distorts people's values and destroys the environment.

Let's learn about the story behind some products that we are all familiar with and that many of us have on a daily basis.

On 14th of October we are happy to have Cory Doctorow on TROMcast. We will discuss the online trades: data, attention, views, likes, and so forth. And the monopolies and consequences that revolve around it all.

very cool!

from frogs and behavior (spoiler alert: the frog dies at the end ;) to money. The latter is no short read, but convinced me that "das kapital" desperately needed illustrations! Each e-book is delightful and thoughtful.

What Is Trade Free? Interview with Tio from Tromsite.com
https://link.trom.tf/WqE-S

Unfortunately you have to trade your attention (ads) to listen to it (a bit ironical), but hey it is great that we can get to talk about these ideas with new minds. Thank you Joey for the invitation and for the good questions.
