Framadate is an online service for planning an appointment or making a decision quickly and easily. No registration is required. It's a community free/libre software alternative to Doodle. Here is how it works: create a poll, define dates or subjects to choose from, send the poll link to your friends or colleagues, discuss and make a decision.
Imagine if, us humans, could collaborate and create a vaccine that's safe, without wanting any trade out of it, but simply to make the vaccine to stop the pandemic. As long as you want to make a vaccine in order to get something else in return (a trade), then you will fuck things up.
Lets make a vaccine to get more currency/data/power/stuff in return = rushed and unscientific decisions, because you want the currency/data/power/stuff
Lets make a vaccine to stop the COVID19 pandemic = safe and scientific decisions, because that's what you want, to stop the COVID19 pandemic
We know how to make decisions today, is just that they are crippled by trades. Remove the need for trade, to have scientific decisions in place.
The big surprise came when I decided to take the step and change to the TROMjaro (linux) operating system: My computer now works as fast as it did on the first day, it doesn't crash, the system is very intuitive and it didn't take me any time to get used to, since I have access to everything I used for my daily work and much more- for free and with much more privacy compared to other operating systems. 🙂
Installing an OS was something new for me, but I learned to do so and it was a fulfilling experience that I recommend. In fact I have installed it in 3 other laptops.
I use its many recommended apps to navigate the internet, chat, watch documentaries, films, read news, ebooks, listen to music, podcasts, edit documents, videos, images, organize my day to day… It is very easy to keep all my stuff safe and the system updated and if I have any problems, the TROM Support guys are there to assist, no charge. Better than free, trade-free. Overthinking is malo, just try TROMjaro.
Now you have trade-free access to scientific articles, documentaries and all kinds of files, images, etc.. Want to download a documentary? Simply search for the name of the documentary, then select the "files" tab and you can download it from the BitTorrent network.
Are you searching for a scientific paper? Search for it, then select the Science tab to access it.
Give SearX a try - we use it for our TROM books and all of that.
A trade-free search engine that can make use of most popular search engines, and thus it is as good if not better than any of them; it also has several distinctive search tabs such as "files" that lets you find any file on the p2p (bittorrent network); videos to search for videos; science for scientific articles that are also devoid of paywalls wherever possible; IT for when you need some help with IT issues; images, maps and more. We have services such as file uploaders for anyone to upload and share files with their friends, a BitTorrent client in the browser, a tool to let you subscribe to so many service via RSS (without needing to login and such into any of them), private and encrypted notes, tools to anonymize your browsing, to schedule appointments, or to test your internet speed.
And these are the tip of the iceberg. We are testing many more services. And we will add more and more with time. A huge thanks to the ever-present Alexio who not only has set up all of these and manage them, but he even pays for them from his own pocket.
In a few hours we will discuss about TROMland and similar projects in our TROMcast. See you there!
Thank you anonymous human :).
1. Dissecting TROM Documentary;
2. Why don't we collaborate with others?;
3. Our experience with TVP;
4. Did we live better in the past?.
Probably in this order, we will see. Very interesting ones. Some people from TVP will participate to some of these. So stay tuned and follow tromsite.com/live ;).
In his and many people's minds, abundance means very cheap, almost free access to stuff. Phones, books, media, healthcare, etc.. Like youtube that is abundant with videos. And he is right, these things can be, or already are abundant. But all of these come with trades attached. They are not trade-free. You trade your data, attention, or other currencies to these "free and abundant" services.
Thing is, we already have more stuff than we need in the world. An abundance of them. Scarcity is rarely to be found. Yet this abundance is all locked-up behind trades. All of those cars and apartments, food and toys, digital stuff, are mainly accessible if you give your currency, data, attention, and so forth away.
This is why focusing on trade cuts through this bullshit of "abundance" and all kinds of data mining and such "free" services.
1. We already have an abundance of stuff today, and there is little to no scarcity of anything
2. This abundance is mainly available if you trade for it
That means, if you really want a world of abundance, we need to make trade obsolete. So then, this abundance is available as trade-free. Simple. Focus on trade as the issue.

Why is it important?
1. Because pretty much no one gets the trade-free idea and it is so important to get it, as it is the origin of most problems. So, learn more about what is and what is not trade-free by submitting and reviewing goods/services.
2. Because we can showcase to people that there are thousands of trade-free goods/services out there. Suck a duck no-sayers 🙂 !
3. Because we can contact these organizations (the more we know, the better) and tell them about this trade-free idea and TROM. We are already inviting a few to future TROM-Casts and such. So help us find more such organizations.
4. Because you and I and your mother and everyone else, can use these trade-free goods and services and trade less as a result of that.
So. Do it. Instead of reading "bad" news in quantities that are not healthy, spend that time to do a bit of good.

A very Big THANKS TO YOU ALL TROM-JARO TEAM…

See"] you tomorrow! 🙂
1. People are not offered an education (what humans are, how human behavior works, how our society works, and so forth). Humans are thought to obey and respect the rules of the educational system, and that their end goal is a "career".
2. Humans spend most of their lives trading. Jobs and loans, universities and servitude. They, at best, get specialized in selling themselves to the system.
3. Our society of trade only cares about trading. Thus, what people consume (from products to news) is likely produced of a bad quality for the sake of views, currencies, fame, data, and so forth. Humans fill their heads with clickbait misinformation.
4. The ones in power are the same creatures created by the same system, only that they have a lot of power and the only way they think they can solve problems ,is through punishment.
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = a society of simple minded (perhaps primitive) humans who do not know where the problems are, nor what to do about them. A society of primitive creatures busy with trading. A society of primitive abusers who may think that if you turn off the volume, perhaps the music won't play anymore. It is the perfect mix that will create combustion from time to time, yet no long lasting flames.
What to do? It is hard to say. But as long as people do not understand that the worldwide society we live in is solely based on trades and this insane game of moving shit from one place to another is completely eating their lives, transforming them into primitive creatures, then nothing will change. Understand the main problem, to be able to contemplate solutions. Else...combustion, but no flame. Lots of gagging, but no vomit.

For TROMsite you can keep an eye on tromsite.com/live where we post daily.
1. It was collecting data and injecting ads into the search results on tromsite.com.
2. I wasn't managing it anymore and I don0t think anyone used it honestly
3. We discovered a great search engine that is not TROM curated but is very functional and I think it makes sense for anyone to use it. See more about it here https://www.trade-free.org/directory/?s=searx - I recommend https://www.trade-free.org/directory/goods-services/search-disroot-org/ - install this addon for Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disroot-search/?src=search and start using it. I will explain more about it when we release a new TROMjaro iso since it will be the default search engine on TROMjaro.
If anyone still wants to use the old google curated search engine see https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=008802094222122130605:ramsowydbq4 - all in all, it was not that ok to use it on tromsite.

For those who are wondering if there are any trade-free goods/services out there, this is our answer to them. Yes there are, and we are creating a massive directory to showcase them. And we need your help. This website relies on people to submit trade-free goods/services and to review/rate them. We made it all super easy for you. No account needed.
First, glance at the stuff we already added here https://www.trade-free.org/directory/. Then use the submit form to submit new stuff and also underneath each item you can submit your review.
Tomorrow (27th) we will make an entire TROM-Cast about this directory and anyone can participate. 6PM Madrid time at tromsite.com/live or [link src="tromsite.com/chat.
Please"] help us grow this directory!
