📚Undystopian Alexandria

Welcome to the open library of Undystopian Alexandria, make yourself comfortable here.

As passionate cypherpunks and zesty fruits living in this current, historic age -- we felt compelled to start creating a library of future commons. We believe that through books full of stories and ideas, we can amplify the potential of our shared dreams about a future, where privacy is a fundamental human right. Shared words and vocabulary are the brick and mortar for projects that we might build together.

At this point in time, knowledge is scattered and everybody is naturally interested in so many different things. Science-fiction, research papers, and other types of books are a great way to explore different angles that we can take, while leaning into a shared future.

The collection is modest and we've just taken the first couple of small steps, but we hope you feel inspired to add to this collection too. For the time being we're focusing on cypherpunk and other related topics, which enable social and political change through privacy-enhancing technologies.
