in my solarpunk future everyone is given an opensource e-ink reading device with access to literally every book ever written through a peer-to-peer library

@tulsi or in a less perfect future make like the library of Alexandria - anyone who brings a book into the city has to leave a copy in the library

@anne oh definitely. Libraries imo should be central to community organizing and could easily have nodes setup that anyone can connect to sync ebooks as a first step. we should need to all agree to stop caring about copy right law.

@tulsi
A free library like that might be a great place to start in an off-the-grid pirate city.

@anne yeah definitely. There's even this project that makes it quite easy librarybox.us/

@tulsi the reader in me is overjoyed but the neurodivergent in me is *horrified*.

@tulsi now I'm fantasizing about how to create a custom firmware on my Kindle with ipfs on it

@sabogato I don't think it's quite prime time ready (only currently supports one kindle model) but I've been following it anxiously.
