Here's some hashtags to what I'm all about. If you relate to any of these, I would love to interact with you all!

Activists rally to save Internet Archive as a lawsuit from publishers threaten to shut it down decrypt.co/31906/activists-ral

If people are smart, it's time to archive the Archive right now. In other words, fork it and turn it unto a decentralized platform. I hope someone out there is working on that.

Plus you have to think libraries need some decentralization as well as this lawsuit could kill libraries as we know them.

Publishers/authors are trying to officially kill the Internet Archive torrentfreak.com/publishers-su

It's become very clear that these publishers and authors want to kill libraries and it would be a dangerous precedent if they win.

For example: libraries never needed permission to lend books, and these same publishers are trying to change that with this suit. techdirt.com/articles/20200519

Makes buying a PinePhone and a Librem 5 mean even more now...

Planning on going out expansionally for the first time in 15 months. A good feeling.

Yet another mega merger could take place as Amazon might acquire MGM: variety.com/2021/digital/news/

I get a whole gut feeling that this is only going to be the start of MergerMania running wild post-pandemic where there will be a lot of moves like this on every industry and antitrust can't keep up.

Бронзы Бить Café 80s 42 - Scanning between the lines

The 80s may have superficially mirrored the 50s’ conservative pop consumerism more than the 60s’ idealistic open-minded adventurism, but the psychedelic aesthetic was by no means dead. Not only did it boil potently below the surface, often times it influenced mainstream sounds, sometimes rearing its head in the open.
