Om publikationen (klipp)

"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."

Har någon BIBLIST-läsare möjligen läst/recenserat denna bok? Det kunde 
kanske vara nyttigt att ventilera dess innehåll?
