Over the past several months, on the kind invitation of Michel Bauwens, I have been serializing chapters from my recently published book The Homebrew Industrial Revolution: A Low-Overhead Manifesto. As stated in the product description at Amazon, the book is

Chapter Four: Back to the Future. One excerpt.
Chapter Six: Resilient Communities and Local Economies. First excerpt.
