I have to add that Fahrenheit 451 is as relevant as Brave New World and 1984 now. Right now I'm downloading the contents of the videos I have saved on my YouTube account for the last 12 years +. European thought Nazis decided to infringe on our freedom to gain Knowledge. Many of my saved documentaries are already deleted or I can't access them anymore. I am a strong believer that Knowledge is Power. The more we Know the more powerful we are. Our Access to Information-Education, Books, the Internet, Networking is limited because they don't want us to gain knowledge that could lead us to a revolution that goes beyond a rebellion. We shouldn't have to decide between two options only when there are many options out there that are equally valid.

Late edit: changed 'contests' to 'contents' and added 'have to' to make sense of 'We shouldn't have to decide'

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!

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.
