Since this book will be published under a Creative Commons license, it will be entirely available on the website. The site, however, will be much more: a portal to all kinds of specifics on how to find and use the best open systems.

I plan to create an exhaustive listing of liberty- and privacy-protecting technologies and techniques. But the key value will be in the curation and recommendation of what experts in these arenas believe are the best ones, but also which are the easiest to use by regular people.

This approach is essential for several reasons. First, the technologies are changing so rapidly that details in the book will become outdated all too quickly. Second, an aggregation approach, plus blogging on the latest developments in this arena, are ideally suited to a website.
