Open Source Reddit Alternatives - AlternativeTo.net by JasonCarswell in TechCompanies

I just added SaidIt.net to AlternativeTo.net but it needs to be approved. So if you don't see it there now come back soon and upvote SaidIt.

I'd been to AlternativesTo before. I added MyVote.IO in 2018 and then found out I actually wouldn't have added it for some reason I forget (not open source?, corporate/commercial?, or SJW?) but left it because it's not wrong and it's better than nothing. While I was there I'd posted something about BitChute in 2017 (maybe WebTorrent?). (Actually there are a LOT of alts to BitChute there! https://alternativeto.net/software/bitchute/)

So how did I find myself there today?

Walking to the grocery store I had time to think. I came back to do searches for open-source reddit meta tag or search - in hopes of finding stuff to add.

Ryan Dawson has gone through hell being censored.

In his interview with the Halsey News Network "Radio Free America (Episode 268): Social Censorship" (2019-03-04) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oq_2W8_oDHE at around 1:40:00 they discuss who he's ruled out and the solution he goes with now. He finally set up a paywall through Cleeng after trying Muvi and Wistia and other stuff.

I don't know what scares me the most, that they are stupid enough to try this experiment while being a hardcore Amazon customer, that they are paying 2 prime membership, that their 1 year old kid is watching full length movies or that this same 1 year old baby is using an Alexia device!!??

Everipedia, "also known as “Thug Wikipedia” to the insiders", a decentralized alternative, seems completely independent of WikiMedia. by JasonCarswell in TechCompanies

Evripedia is a free online encyclopedia project co-founded Sam Kazemian, Theodor Forseliusm, Travis Moore, and Mahbod Moghadam. In contrast to wiki encyclopedias such as Wikipedia and InfoGalactic, the website desribes itself as a "knowledge aggretator" which combines the "best parts" of Wikipedia, Reddit, and Google into an encyclopdia of human knowledge and searchable content, with a modern, streamlined interface.

I would like to be able to change this image from it's default. Naturally that would require an optional second link.

I am surprised about just how much relies on Amazon, and expected it would be much simpler before I read.

Beats me. Having no formal company or entity seems to be working out well so far.

These guys are the real deal, they are a social purpose company with benefiting the customer locked into their bylaws as the #1 priority.
