You might want to collaborate with /u/d3rr who has a PeerTube instance and sub sharing the name /s/DownTheMemoryHole.

I too am a digital hoarder, though much much much less so since becoming a SaidIt addict. I have drives and drives full and sitting there waiting for a wad of cash for a server or a new technology that is decentralized, non-censored, and free of copyright worries so that I may share all the stuff I found interesting enough to download - even if I haven't seem way more than most of it. The fear of book burning censorship made me do it!

They don't gotta burn the books, they just remove them

Is that a quote?

A proper SJW won't burn the books cause muh carbon.
A proper SJW won't burn the books cause muh recycling.

Free lyrics for anyone who want's them.

Tom and Right At This Moment are familiar to me. I just know know which song, because I'm not super familiar.

I like Tool because they have intelligent lyrics, but I don't really like their music for long.

I like the ideas of Florence Raging With Her Machine (in that way) but I'm not a huge fan of their music, nor Tom's music and its activism. I'd rather watch Tom bitch slap Bill Maher with his common sense ideas and awareness.

I just subscribed. Thank you for the excellent recommendation.

I notice that Saidit is popping for the last few days. What's up? Is there a bank holiday for our American brethren?

I hadn't noticed. I only see activity in chat randomly. How do you see / measure activity?

I just noticed many new threads. I sorted Voat after new and sometimes I'd see the same threads for days.

It's important to keep downloading and saving things for future generations after the internet becomes sanitized. I try to download as much as possible and making it accessible for future offline use. We might have to take our hoarding a step further. Right now I'm not crazy enough or have the resources to print and distribute everything. But I collect old fashioned physical copies of books. If they decide against their interests and kill (parts of the internet) the physical copies of Knowledge will still exist.- Fahrenheit.

Like you're reading my mind.

In my dreams I picture FANG failing under it's own gluttony - as well as the emergence of a distributed web. Just as everyone has appliances, water heater, furnace, etc. they should also have a plug-and-play minifridge-sized to a collection of servers in their basements, attics, garages, etc. in as many homes as can invest (and eventually earn from it) to take back centralized power.
