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!

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

Hey people, we have added a new cool thing to our TROM Social, the presentation page. Here https://trom.tf/social/ (scroll down a bit). It is a list of sources we recommend for you to follow on TROM Social. It is as easy as copy paste these sources to your contacts' list. We are adding a lot more so check it out from time to time. The direct link is this https://trom.tf/social/#rec

And if you can support the work that we do, please consider a donation https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Just a reminder that religion is a pile of primitive ideas:

It is as crazy as flat earthers, qanon, and all of these conspiracies, if not crazier. Unfortunately it is wrapped in a nice package in today's society. But yah, lets not forget that religions are just a bunch of cults, surrounded by crazy people. #tromimg
The truth is religion is silly and not real. Yes, we should be nice to each other, but if we are to make fun of flat earthers and the like, then religion should not be on our "exempt" list.
As a species we need to overcome the ignorance,and make most of what we already know.Now as for flatearthers,the space age is on its way.My prediction is that after 50 years or so, everyone would finally understand the curveture of the earth and would start thinking about other planets/lifeforms.Just to be clear,we are still in the information age,that will hopefully remove ignorance and stupidity🙂


We are very happy to announce yet another service part of our trom.tf project: TROMchat https://chat.trom.tf/ See more info here: https://trom.tf/chat/

This is a Matrix chat. Matrix is like Email, a protocol. Which means it is decentralized. We provide a server and a chat so that anyone can create an account and use. It is an amazing chat, a true repalcement for any sort of chats such as Telegram, Discord, and so forth. Encrypted, unlimited, trade-free. See all of the features here https://trom.tf/chat/

We invite you to join and ditch the pesky trade-based chats. Tens of millions are already using this protocol and our TROM team resides there too.

These are our public chatrooms:

#chat:matrix.trom.tf
#tromjaro:matrix.trom.tf
#translation:matrix.trom.tf

Simply add them to your Matrix account as rooms. Simple. And see you there! #tromimg

Oh and if you like what we do, and you can help us financially, please do so here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Thanks!

Unfortunately our last TROMcast recording was lost...it was a personal mistake (me, Tio) in the way I setup the live. See the explanation here https://social.trom.tf/display/dbc8dc44-2161-130e-dc46-8f2392068314

We are very very sorry because it was a great discussion with Dr. Sophia Moskalenko - you can follow her on Twitter via RSS here https://bird.trom.tf/sophiamoskalen1 . In the next TROMcast I will try to summarize a bit our discussion. Again, very sorry....

Here's some positiveness tho. These are little bugs. They are not plants/leafs.


How amazing is nature....these are the true superheroes with superpowers :). Photo grabbed from our https://tromnews.com/photos/ - make sure you use our TROMnews to discover more such amazing things. #tromimg


Do not move the trash from one place to another




I think this image sums up pretty well the current stupidity, where people fear the vaccines without knowing anything about vaccines.

Instead of listening to a world-wide scientific consensus, they think it is more reasonable to listen to some facebook or youtube personalities.

Doubt is necessary. But uneducated and unfounded doubt, is dangerous.

If the primitive minds of the so rich tribes do not want the vaccines, give them to those poor tribes that need them desperately.

TROM-Cast: Qanon and the Like



We are very happy to announce that we will have a discussion with Dr. Sophia Moskalenko who is "a social psychologist studying mass identity, inter-group conflict and the appeal of conspiracy theories."

And
"After she received her Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004, her research has focused on the psychology of radicalization and martyrdom. As a research fellow at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (NC-START) she has worked on projects commissioned by the Department of Defence, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of State. "

We will dive deep into the Qanon conspiracy and other similar conspiracies, and touch upon how we can deal with these situations in a realistic manner.

Stay tuned! We will go live at https://www.tromsite.com/live/

#tromimg


We will go live in less than 7 hours.

TROMcast: To Moderate, Or Not

Today we will discuss about this notion of moderating the Internet content by looking closely at our videos.trom.tf (Peertube) instance and what happens to it. The fact that it is full of nonsense content and why is it that these alternative platforms such as Peertube, get invaded by the worst that the Internet and our society has produced.


Here https://videos.trom.tf/w/239682f2-fd1f-43ab-81ef-7c92a3f01336

sl1200 reshared this.



Now that Peertube allows us to create a custom homepage, we can highlight the best of Peertube. We are adding more and more to the homepage. We worked for a bit to make it look nice - see for yourself https://videos.trom.tf/

As a bonus we will add on the homepage a very interesting documentary every week or so. So keep an eye on it! #tromimg

Looks nice, better than the original design.


TROMmaps officially added to https://trom.tf/ as a fully functioning service. See it here in action https://maps.trom.tf/ and here you can learn more about it https://trom.tf/maps/ . It is an amazingly great trade-free map.

One more positive news today: we have added Whiteboards to our TROMfiles https://files.trom.tf and increase the quota from 3GB to 5GB for all users. #tromimg

The way problems are solved today, is ambunalces!


Another way to put it is to look for long term solutions. I think most people don't even realize/believe that these problems could be solved for long term. Like you say, If we need to implement systems in place to look for long term solutions to our problems, the first thing we should do is to change our mindset and look for real & lasting solutions instead of doing the same thing we've been doing for years. People have to change their way of thinking.

But it will take many months to finish. So far so great. #tromimg

The great Notes application is now officially part of https://trom.tf/ - you should read more about it here https://trom.tf/notes/ to understand how to quickly set it all up. It works online or offline, and on any operating system. It syncs between them all and is auto-backed-up in the cloud and offline. Not to mention it is fully encrypted. Plus, you can use whatever text editor you prefer. If you write books, this is great for you. If you write simple notes, it is perfect. If you want to have to-do lists or tasks, again it meets your needs. Code? Again, you can do that too. Markdown support...Vim editor...you name it :). Plus, lots of themes and other extensions.

This Notes app normally costs 10 dollars a month (https://standardnotes.com/features) but we provide all of these features trade-free. So take advantage of that!



#tromimg
it seems really interesting. On first look it seems similar to standard notes. I'll have a look
Heh yes it is a StandardNotes instance with all of the features enabled. It is a Yunohost package! ;)

As said in the post:

Our work on TROM II continues ;):

This is how much humans in USA pay for their medical bills https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=sL-cS9-wxpg&autoplay=0 - it is of course insane to have a society in which humans have to pay to live. Even a broken hand in USA can bankrupt you. USA is obsessed with trading for everything, and as a result their citizens are slaves to debt. In Uk or Spain for example, if a citizen has any medical problems they will be taken care of for free. And that's how it should be! Maybe not all health problems can be accessed for free in these tribes, but most are.

In any case, we should take care of all human beings on this planet. We have enough humans who would be very happy to help (we call these "doctors"), and plenty of resources to do so.

We should not force people to trade for their basic needs when we live in a society of abundance already. #tromimg

Those who think that Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies are better than money, understand nothing about this trade-based society. Currencies only represent trades, and trade is what pushes people to create so much destruction in the world. Also, to "mine" cryptocurrencies and spend so much energy doing that, more than countries of hundreds of millions of people, is simply insane. What these "miners" do is "solving" irrelevant mathematical problems to see what computer is first to get some rewards for that. Just to create more currency and "distribute" it in a very unequal manner to those who have the most powerful computers.



TROM cuts through this shit like a hot knife through butter, because TROM focuses on "trade as the origin of most problems", and not money.

Zbych reshared this.

I think you are overly-complicating things. :P - My definition of trade is quite easy to grasp I'd say, as explained above. We also have a book explaining the "birth of trade" - see it here https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6616/1/ - and another one all about trade, here https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6562/1/ ;)

I appreciate your engagement, but I think you re taking the definition of trade to the stars and back, and that's not what we are talking about. :)
@TROM
Thanks for taking a look at our books. But always keep in mind that if you want to put the microscope on any word, it will quickly lose any sense of reality. This is why we need context. And our context seems very simple: trade is the exchange of goods/services. Like we see today in so many different forms. I explained a lot in the comment section here and a lot more in the books mentioned. If you want, we could have a live discussion about "what is trade" in a special tromcast. If you can join and would want to do that let us know and we can schedule one. To have a friendly discussion about this notion. Could be useful for others to participate too and/or to listen.
:-D

Electric cars and batteries won't change the world-



This entry was edited (4 months ago)
aye,
M:E E:P P:(p)W

Where "E"=("E"conomics / "E"nergy "E"xchange) is a an emergent subset of "M"=("M"orality).
"P"=("P"olitics) is an emergent subset of "E"(conomics).
And "(p)"[otential]"W"(ar) is an emergent subset of "P"(olitics)

So long as the base "morality"/"ethics" is "destructive" (it seeks elimination of creative "dynamic"), the ultimate emergent form of "E"(conomics aka "Energy Exchange") is itself going to be one that acts in the pursuit of "death" (that is to say, seeks towards stagnation and elimination of individual dynamics).

Any "profit" motive rooted in "I" scale in volume is going to ultimately seek to both consume AND control itself unto it's own end as it's root moral ethic is one rooted in a base function of maximizing the choice (aka "freedom"/"liberty") of a specific individual (entity) through achievement of nothing but a standing reflection of only that specified individual (entity). There's no achieving "freedom" when a root function is itself "ALL OBEY MY COMMAND".


Because our trade-free social network is so cool :) , we can now add posts into categories. And thus, we created a blog category here https://social.trom.tf/profile/trom/status?category=Blogs where you can see all of our TROM worthy, and brief, blogs. The section can be easily accessed via our main social network page https://social.trom.tf/profile/trom :



We highly recommend that you ditch Facebook/Twitter and the like, and come use our https://social.trom.tf social network (Friendica). You can connect with millions of people, follow pretty much anyone online, create long posts, add them to categories....there are no bans or restrictions, and so forth. See you there!

People in this society: This is such an amazing tool, a free Photoshop in the browser! Look: https://www.photopea.com/ - and so many comment and get excited about it and praise it.

People who understand how this trade-based society works: This software is not trade-free! You have to trade your currency (to unlock features), your freedom (accept their terms), your data (that they collect), your attention (because they inject ads).


This is how the understanding of trade cuts through the bullshit of this society where people pretend to provide "free" goods and services. Most do not. Be aware of that! #tromimg

"Company drops contentious Keystone XL pipeline project" https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/6/9/company-drops-contentious-keystone-xl-pipeline-project

People are cheering how activism forced a multi-billion dollar project, meant to make profits and destroy the environment, to be canceled. It is great that activism can achieve, at times, such feats. It is also pointless overall. Unless we talk about what makes human beings just care about the profit (wink-wink: trade), then there is no sailing on this wind of activism. 1 such project can get canceled, after a 10 year battle, while in the meantime 10 more are probably planned. Or 100.

This a a photo with the Mexican army protecting turtle eggs' poaching:


While is nice that they are trying.....to think that this is the way forward is simply insane.

Point is, as long as we deal with the symptoms of this trade-based society, we will solve nothing. #tromimg

Tio:

Now we know - we have 24h of recordings for TROM II. In total. Insane! All are added and synced in one massive Kdenlive project. These days I am starting the editing for it. Been waiting for this for months now. We have a ton of great content there. Let's see we may end up with a 20h documentary, divided into parts of course. And on top of this I will prepare a shorter one, around 2h or less. Will keep everyone updated, as always, on https://social.trom.tf/profile/trom or https://www.tromsite.com/live/ . #tromimg

Guess what? We finished the recordings for TROM II. Finally! Wow. We stay up until 4am to do them. Sasha was amazing and we got some really great footage from her interview. We may have some 20h of recordings so this these next months we will work on making sense of these all, and create the sequel to TROM documentary. It will be tough - very much so. We keep everyone updated with the progress on our website at https://www.tromsite.com/live/ or our social network at https://social.trom.tf/profile/trom #tromimg



Another night, another excellent recording with @Sasha - great great job! We plan to finish the recordings tomorrow ;). @Aaron is also here to help out with the recordings :). #tromimg



We recorded Sasha today. Really great recording. Everything went so great, so smooth. This first part was all about her life story. Tomorrow we will record about the state of our society. Sasha prepared a lot. She read through a lot of UN reports and such, so that what she will present will be as factual as possible. All of the facts we will present in TROM II will be sourced, of course. Directly on the video and in the description. #tromimg

Cryptocurrencies are as pointless, destructive, and nonsensical as any other currency (say money), social credits, direct trades, tokens and so forth. All are representations of trade. And trade is the source of most problems. Proof here https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6562/1/ #tromimg
