Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well. Today I'm here to announce a new project that's been in the works for months now. It's called NODE Vol 01, and is a new zine for the NODE community.

It's been a collaborative effort, and all credit goes to the editor of the zine, Mike Dank, along with the other contributors; Sam Patterson, John Light, Burak Nehbit, Eric Schallock, Esteban Ordano, Mike Shibuya and Lukas Hartmann. I appreciate you all being a part of this.

This first volume is 150 pages long, and contains many of the subjects we talk about here. It's packed with features on P2P projects, such as Dat, Beaker Browser, Ricochet IM, Aether, and more. There are many tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, how to 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to do things like Libreboot the Thinkpad X200 laptop. There's also a handy open source directory at the back, along with tonnes more.

The digital version is available for free right now, and will be distributed using the Dat P2P protocol. The whole thing is also licensed under Creative Commons (Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International), so you're free to share and remix. (For more info, view the License folder in the Dat)

For the print version, I'm going to open up a short 1-week preorder window, so however many of you order one in this week, is however many will be printed for the first batch, so don't miss out if you want a copy.

Also, be aware that it will take probably about 3 weeks from ordering, to them actually being shipped as they need to be physically made first.

Anyways, I hope you like it. This first issue took way longer than I anticipated, but I'm glad it's finally done. We're going to aim for doing 1 a year, as a way to keep track of all the latest happenings, new ideas and technologies etc. We're also going to open up submissions for future volumes, and hopefully we can make it bigger and better.

Now that it's completed, I will be getting back to more of the normal videos, and restocking the shop. I'll be covering some of the articles mentioned in the zine in new videos, plus lots more. I've got so many ideas that I want to begin working through, and I'm pretty excited.

Alright, thank you for your patience, hope you like this. Again, I want to thank everyone who spent the time on Vol 01, especially Mike. As for all you watching, I love you all, and will see you in the next video.
