Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing well. Today I want to announce the long awaited launch of NODE Vol 02, the second issue of our zine.

This is something that Mike and I have been working on for the past year, and we're glad to finally be able to show you.

The subtitle for Vol 02 is Manifesting Reality, and this time it's all about building the world you want to see. Covering many topics and projects in the digital counterculture, this issue primarily focuses on the people creating amazing open hardware, and world-changing decentralized software systems.

We've taken all the feedback we received on Volume 1, and created an 180 page handbook for the future. It's packed with hardware projects like the OpenBook, The Reform 2 laptop, the AXIOM camera, the Librerouter, as well as staples like the new Raspberry Pi 4 Mini Server, and Zero Terminal handheld computer.

There are tonnes of in-depth articles and interviews covering some of the most exciting peer-to-peer projects out there, including IPFS, Iris, Cabal, Secure Scuttlebutt, and lots more. Also returning is an everexpanding Open Source Directory with hundreds more projects, and a new Meshnet Atlas.


I'm going to open pre-orders for the print version, and will set it up exactly the same as last time. The pre-order window will be 1 week from when this video goes up, and the funds from that will go directly towards getting this first batch printed.

Be aware that orders will be limited to 1 per person for this first lot, and that it will take probably 2-3 weeks from when your order is placed until it's shipped, since we actually have to get them made first.

From both Mike and I, we wanted to say a massive thank you to you all, and we hope you like it. We think we've created something unlike anything else out there right now.

On a personal note, I just want to let you know that I'm excited about what's coming up in the future, and can't wait to start showing you everything that I've been doing. I took some time away from the video side of things to work on all this, and hopefully it was worth it.

Anyways, let me know what you think. Share this around to help get the word out. Thanks again, and remember, we're all nodes in the network.


Like the previous issue, the digital version is free to download on the zine page.
