While TROM is focused mostly (if not entirely) on the digital world and creates/enables a ton of trade-free alternatives for digital services, someone like Colin is trying to make people share physical goods, but also services (online or offline). His project ShareBay https://www.sharebay.org/ recently got a new design. Check it out and use it if you can.

In the future TROM will also create more such projects that reach beyond the digital, and will try to push the education/information via such projects. We may even collab with Colin on this project.

Great job Colin, one of the few who keeps on being active and doing important projects. #tromlive

Its important to note that https://trade-free.org is a decentralized movement like the free software movement, so anyone can be a part of it if they want.

Our TROMnews Illustrations is back https://tromnews.com/illustrations/ !! We gave up trying to pull an RSS from instagram accounts, and we do so from Twitter now. Luckily these accounts have twitter. This section is perhaps the most TROM relevant of all of the TROMnews section, as it represents important ideas and criticisms of this society, via illustrations. Very very powerful.

If you know more such artists let us know so we can add them to the mix!

Yup. By the way another great thing, not related to the app, but comments on these posts also go automatically to the TROMjaro website - https://www.tromjaro.com/ventoy/ - because we are activitypubbed! 😀
cool, going to check it out, great idea!

The usual Manjaro updates plus: Backup app We have replaced the default files backup application. Instead of using DejaDup, that had some Google Drive integration, we are now using the Pika Backup application.

I think your initiative was quite interesting because something I think is missing is a repository of images (like Unsplash) that can be used on websites and news but that is also social and libre (like Pixelfed). I think some kind of tweaked Pixelfed would do the job.
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.





If you want to check how reliable our websites are see https://status.tromsite.com - all of our websites are up and running all the time. Few exception when we update them or the server. But usually they are very reliable. #tromlive

We have a new homepage for our Peertube instance - https://videos.trom.tf/home



It is featuring some channels from our instance. Unfortunately people do not use our instance much....but we at TROM do. That's our main video platform. Feel free to join us there. #tromlive

Our TROM Live stopped working.

We are perhaps going to change our TROM Live page for good. You see in order for us to post live updates on this page we had to do a hack that involved RSS + Google’s FeedBurner + a paid for plugin. The posts were not properly formatted at times, plus for the past days the hack stopped working. We guess is because Google’s FeedBurner is discontinued, or in the process of.

But why complicate things? We are on the Fediverse already! That’s a proper social network. So from now on keep an eye on our page. Make an account with our TROM Social and interact with us and so forth. You can also follow the TROM updates that the TROM members post: Tio, Sasha, Aaron.

So, come join us on the Fediverse!

I understand, let's see if there's a better way.... 🤔
Yeah we may find a better way, but for now if people follow this TROM page then they will get the most important updates from TROM.
