In 2014, I gave a talk called Free is a Lie at a run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen, Silicon-Valley-worshiping Big Tech/surveillance capitalism conference in the Netherlands.
Yesterday, I learned that they unlisted my talk on *spit* YouTube and that it might be removed.
Today, I archived it so you can keep watching it for as long as you want to.
@dave @famubu There is absolutely no need to use a blockchain for sharing videos. We pay for Vimeo as you would for hosting. I prefer that to <insert next right-libertarian get rich quick scheme here>. Also see PeerTube if you want to run your own. (Eventually, videos, like anything else, will be hosted on your own small web node. But still, you’d either have to host on your own machine or pay sometime for hosting. The latter isn’t solvable unless we subsidise it from the commons.)
@dave @famubu Sorry, looked it up, was right the first time (right libertarian): https://twitter.com/jeremykauffman/status/1404860303104524290?s=20
(That’s the founder.)
nazis, "free speech"
@dave @maxi @famubu I’d rather not have my stuff hosted on places that aren’t safe for other people (and I’d hate to even tacitly seem to be supporting right-libertarian / far-right projects like Odysee … the means do not justify the ends. They may have a beef with Big Tech too but they do so for all the wrong reasons. The enemy of your enemy is not always your friend.).
