how2 avoid youtube 

1. Youtube provides RSS feeds. They're very useful.
They are in the form of<channel ID>

2. mpv - and probably others - can open Youtube URLs directly.

3. On Android, there's a piece of software called NewPipe that parses YouTube webpages - and RSS feeds - to provide a more pleasant interface.

3. There's a Firefox addon that redirects Youtube pages to Invidious automatically.

4. If you combine these, you can avoid ever opening the site. I have a script[1] that decides whether to open mpv or a web browser when I click an entry in QuiteRSS for stuff I care about.

5. You can feed youtube-dl a channel or playlist URL and it will download the lot.

Bonus: not using the website will probably result in you wasting less time as you're not subject to their psychological warfare.

so many people funnelling talent into big tech have zero understanding of how those businesses are fundamentally poised to destroy democracy.

your admiration for the architecture of amazon, facebook, google, etc should at this point be intensely degraded by the cultural & economic violence they enact upon their. own. users.

This is a small thing, but: Logging in Rust is absurdly nice.

Im Grunde müssen wir als Gesellschaft anfangen die Player des Überwachungskapitalismus zu ächten wie wir Sklaverei, Kinderarbeit und Landmienen geächtet haben.

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
