Introducing 'Peer Production on the Crypto Commons'

This post is about why I wrote “Peer Production on the Crypto Commons”, a free book type resource (website, ebook, pdf). The short answer is that I am inspired by the people who see some broken aspect of their society and set about to fix it or build an alternative. I am not optimistic about the direction in which the dominant global institutions are steering our society. I am optimistic about what we can do to re-engineer things if we continue to better leverage the benefits of the digital commons and the freedom to communicate and distribute information securely at low cost.
