“As a Filipino-Australian, I found an unlikely home in the Indie music scene”, an article in SBS Voices:
Did you play in [average indie band] in [second class city] in  and have since moved on to become a primary school teacher or archbishop or something?
Go dig out your old bands CDs, rip them and put them up on Bandcamp for like $2. Someone out there, like me, who loved your music but lost/destroyed your CD years ago will be *very* happy to find you again.

I have indeed renewed my subscription to https://rrr.org.au/ - Not only are we keeping an excellent thread of local Melbourne radio alive, but their stickers make our laptops 25% _better_. My musical brain expanded so much thanks to RRR over the years.
@kensanata You posted something a day or two ago about "small internet propaganda". I think the closing line of gemini://inconsistentuniverse.space/essays/mozilla.gmi is really nice, and could easily be turned into a slogan / rallying cry:
"I want the internet to be us and not just three websites full of screenshots of each other".
