"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 flourishing of the offline digital
library is a response to the fact that truly private sharing of knowledge
in the online realm is increasingly made impossible. While P2P sharing
sites and online libraries with downloadable e-books are precarious,
people are led to an atavistic and reversalist workaround. 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. Radical Tactics of the Offline Library traces the history of
the library and the importance of the Personal Portable Library in sharing
knowledge and resisting proprietarian forces."
