“The Personal Portable Library in its most simple form is a hard drive or USB stick containing a large collection of e-books, curated, archived and indexed by an individual user.
The Radical Tactics of the Offline: abandoning the online for more secure offline transfer. Taking inspiration from ancient libraries as copying centers and Sneakernet, Henry Warwick describes the future of the library as digital and offline.”
The content of the book was written by Henry Warwick and you can download it through the Institute of Network Cultures website.
The physical book works as an external hard drive, where the owner is encouraged to build a small library with ePubs and PDFs. When the physical book is shared with someone else, this person gets access to the small library that the book’s owner has built inside the hard drive.
