    This is a great idea! I’m very pleased by you doing this…

  2. Duck says:

    For after the EMP…….
    “… IPoAC may achieve bandwidth peaks of orders of magnitude more than the Internet when used with multiple avian carriers in rural areas. For example: If 16 homing pigeons are given eight 512 GB SD cards each, and take an hour to reach their destination, the throughput of the transfer would be 145.6 Gbit/s, excluding transfer to and from the SD cards….”

    Wow i did not know that James was on another persons show every week.

    Indeed, the Decentralization of Information and thus the ability for anyone to get the information they seek is fundamental to individual freedom.

    Prior to the invention of the Printing Press (about 1440 AD), books deemed to be worth duplicating, were rewritten by hand. For about a thousand years Vatican City decided what was worth having additional copies of, and many copies of the Bible were made (in Latin) to be distributed to Churches and Missionaries around the world. Since the controlled masses were not allowed to possess a Bible, and even if they did manage to get a peak at one, they likely could not read Latin, and had no way of knowing what Christ was actually preaching. Thus, the Priests were free to interpret “The Word of God” as they wished.
    The Printing Press allowed for a layman’s Version of the Bible to be mass produced and thus opened up a whole new world of Decentralized Knowledge for all that learned how to read.
    Most knowledgeable people over the last 500 years have had there own collection of Books. And, for the last 200 years, Public Libraries have made most books available to nearly everyone, with the time and the determination to seek written knowledge. Today, with a connection to the Internet, and a good Search Engine, nearly anyone can find the information they seek in minutes, without leaving their home.
    That all sounds great until you begin to see that the Internet itself can be controlled, like the Church controlled, “The Word of God”. For a thousand years the teachings of Christ were censored and controlled by Usurpers who sanctioned rule by force, (a direct contradiction to the teachings of Christ).
    Today I see a new Church, a “Church of the Internet” that wishes to control the masses through what they allow to be seen and read on the Internet. Downloading and saving Documentaries, Interviews, Video clips, and what ever we consider valuable is like reprinting a good Books.

  5. OZ says:

    by the way. Some or most of the old references/links do not work from the Corbettreport site. Some I have managed to access by typing in the address.

    Login is not working on IPFS.

    A few months ago, I downloaded some of the Corbett Report videos, added them in the ipfs-desktop client and posted the video hash here in the comment section. At some point, I stopped the client though, because I didn’t see any significant traffic and also, it’s kind of resource-hungry. I might change my mind again, but in the meantime, I’ve come to the conclusion that a standard Bittorrent setup might be easier. You might have to provide the torrent files or magnet links on the website for people to be able to load the right files, but many people could just continue using the Bittorrent client they already have.

    Also, I think it’s more important to distribute the actual video files using a censorship-resistant system than the website, at least at this point in time with Youtube becoming less and less reliable and relevant.

    So many videos are disappearing from Youtube lately, it’s really a sign that we’ve become too dependent on it as a central platform (why would you use a slow file sharing client if you can find it on Youtube) and it’s a reminder that file sharing systems like Bittorrent used to be and still are valuable and can be used to distribute and share files without relying on one single point of failure.

  8. Jermaine says:

    So is this “IPFS” the “Internet 2” for when the i-911 crashes the current internet platform?

    • Duck says:

      Its the way to find stuff when the search engines start “non finding” it for you… actual decentralized internet would be something like MESH or Batmann
      Thing is that while HAM’s had access to phone’s over hand held radio decades before Cellular networks existed now they are mostly old people…. I know some who were setting up a MESh but getting non HAM’s involved was not really happening…. unless someone makes an easy non-techie package that people can set up easily the majority will never see a decentralized internet that you dont need an ISP for providing your line.

      The internet for 80% of users is whatever their mobile phone connects to…which is why phone providers set up your default browser and settings

      • Jermaine says:

        Well I have my research cut out for me. Definitely going to go through the PDF on MESH networks. thanks

        • Duck says:

          there is probably better sources, I just did a quick search.
          If your US based getting a Ham radio license is as easy as memorizing the question pool (they publish them online) and taking the test at a club.
          I would bet that if you can find a club with people young enough to actually do stuff you could get a network going.

        • Jeff says:

          Jermaine, below is a link to, a conference where many meshnet protocol folks unite to discuss… protocols. Anywho, the site links to many of the protocols where you can follow the work and dig into what is going on there. I found watching past battlemesh videos of the conferences to be very useful also.

  9. HomeRemedySupply says:

    I am glad IPFS was explained in somewhat layman terms.

    I really appreciate Ernie and his friends. They are solid. True activists. They walk the talk.

  10. Jeff says:

    Hats off to Derrick and Ernest with IPFS! An important piece to the puzzle of communications problems we face today and certainly in the future.

  11. Allen Taylor says:

    Thanks for the deeper dive into IPFS. I was not aware of the IPNS layer, but now I am thanks to your discussion. Looking forward to the future developments of this family of protocols.

  12. Octium says:

    Great stuff, I would certainly like the option to be able to buy a Raspberry Pi and an archival drive from the store.

    It would also be interesting to see a platform like BOINC developed for libertarian purposes,

    For those not familiar with it, it allows people to install a “screensaver” that allows them to donate their spare computing power to scientific projects (you get to choose which projects you support from a preset list)

    From their site …

    “Install BOINC
    BOINC is a program that lets you donate your idle computer time to science projects like SETI@home,, Rosetta@home, World Community Grid, and many others. After installing BOINC on your computer, you can connect it to as many of these projects as you like.”

    With climate change on the list, they are obviously part of the establishment but I’m sure the concept could be borrowed. Ease of installing, a nice screensaver that gives you some stats on what your computer is up to and simple slider controls that allow you to specify how many resources you wish to donate then I’m sure there would be more people willing to host IPFS peers for example.

  13. illbnice2u2 says:

    My friend and I are looking into raising homing pigeons as a last resort for communication.

  14. illbnice2u2 says:

    Remember in 1984 when Wilson would go into the bars trying to find anyone that remembered what it was like in the past? Could it be the reason they are killing off the older people so there will be no one left alive to tell how it use to be when we were a free people. That there was a time when the Government did not watch your every action and listened to your every word.
    They have stopped teaching cursive and I know 21 year
    old ‘s that cursive looks like a foreign language to them. The Constitution is written in cursive and you can’t defend what you don’t know you have.

    • wave.watcher says:

      Interesting questions! That’s very interesting about cursive. I have thought that they are keen on killing off the old folks for the same reason, they lived the history or heard it from their parents, and they remember it. Unless of course they have dementia, and the way rates of dementia are increasing I don’t think it’s an accident. Then all you have to do is hook up those poor old people with dementia to the neural link and give them whatever ‘memories’ you want them to have. So the ‘living history’ becomes whatever fiction the powers that shouldn’t be want to create.

  15. MagicBullet says:

    Hello, I’ve tried to upload a web site to the IPFS thru the desk top for windows but the file paths and style aren’t working. Tried to look up the fix but cant find it. Any help is appreciated, just reply to this post and thanks.

  16. Steve Smith says:

    This is a good article.
    Weird that the author doesn’t bother with capitalization but it doesn’t take anything away for me. New trend I guess.
    I think that he/she accurately describes how we get the internet we ask for. Just like politicians. We only have ourselves to blame.
    As long as we play the game.

    “it’s time we abandoned the misbegotten idea of “too important to be left to free markets” and realized that creating the real public square, commerce, money, and internet are too important NOT to be left to free markets. there is no one we can trust to control these systems, so we must design systems that are not controlled by anyone.“
