Hey mindhive, what's currently the project that best fits this description:

"A collaborative, curated, decentralised repository of streamable and downloadable, openly licensed music and film, for an alternative to proprietary, -promoting streaming services."

And how can such a service reliably serve those digital artefacts to millions, with as little disruption as et al.?

Obviously, it needs to not become a weird alt-right cesspool like et al.

, and more generally our , have no marketing budget. Our advocacy is what they rely on in great part to make sure people even know they exist, or don’t forget they still do, so they can be(come) a part of them.

Hey enthusiasts, I created a / room to share anything that is legally shareable and is worth sharing, if you are interested at all: riot.im/app/#/room/#share-the-
Right now, it's mostly me sharing that I think is good, but I'd love to see more people join :)
