As a programmer it's been really hard to wean myself off of thinking in terms of global solutions. This, in comparison to building local or community technology.

Thinking this way can make things harder (now your tech needs need to scale to the world) and not useful (different people in different places have different needs).

This kind of blew my mind: like, you can just go and build a piece of tech and only give it to your friends & the immediate people it's helpful for. You don't *need* to design for The World. I think this kind of thinking is really important for breaking away from capitalistic modes of thinking.

Thinking about the time and effort coca cola probably put into designing their carbonation to go flat before you can use the soda for a second meal

sites to visit and things to do instead of #youtube:
listen to podcasts and audiodramas! your favorite podcast app probably has a search function already and there a lot of good podcast lists out there. I recommend Greater Boston as a good starter. My favorite way to listen is by downloading a bunch of episodes and taking a long walk.
Archive.org! has a lot of movies and just a lot of Stuff In General!
1/n

I guess I'm going on a rant again. Strap in.

People who make fun of #Linux users who don't appreciate #Microsoft's recent embracing of Linux on cloud and desktop are missing the point in a very disheartening way. We don't want Linux, we want a #FreeDesktop.

For the start of #YoutubeWalkout let me ask: What kept you on YouTube? Is it their recommendations engine?

What can we do instead? For promoting our videos or discovering them?

I've got some answers I'm experimenting with, but alone they are not enough.
