Oh, it's Black Friday today! That means I have been on Mastodon for one year now! :mastodon:

Oh, and here's another suggestion!
@tilvids A video community, with a great collection of interesting videos.

My two favourite suggestions:

@FediFollows : Great suggestions for accounts to follow on Mastodon.

@gamingonlinux : Not only a great website, but also a nice database you can use to search for Linux games or games.

I think it's really important to have such a good gaming website dedicated to Linux!

Wow, GamingOnLinux has a big list of free Linux games: gamingonlinux.com/free-games/

You can filter by genre.
If you want to find open source games, you can also filter by license!

This is worth a read.


Relating to the article, one of my goals for tilvids.com is to build a smaller video community. People often ask me, "Are you trying to replace YouTube?" and the answer is, honestly...no. Not really. I don't think you beat YouTube by recreating YouTube, I think you beat it by building thousands of mini-YouTubes that are smaller and cater to the community. This creates a much higher level of engagement between creators and viewers alike.


How nice of #YouTube to tell creators they don't have enough views to monetize, but then run ads on their videos without giving them any ad revenue. I remember when #Google had a motto of not being evil. Maybe creators should give #PeerTube a try.
