Status update, Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 4:50 AM GMT: There was a power outage that brought the servers down for about an hour, longer for The Anarchist Library. Everything is back up now.
We hope that Anarchy Planet becomes a place where anarchists and their friends can find each other, learn about anarchism, discuss the topics of importance to them and be linked to the universe of anarchy. We will do this by providing the infrastructure for anarchists to communicate to the world and each other. We will do this with communications services (blogs, internal IM, secure IM, email, & more over time) and sites that connect us to each other.
In addition to services Anarchy Planet is a point of departure for an entire world of autonomous anarchist projects (aka a portal). This includes an introduction to anarchy, a news site for anarchists, a site where you can buy anarchist ephemera, a forum, an extensive archive of anarchist texts, and a site for review essays and intelligent conversation.
In addition, Anarchy Planet is putting into place an infrastructure for future anarchist projects and current anarchist opinion. This is collective project will coordinate technology and human resources to fill needs as required by the residents of the Anarchy Planet.
While the Anarchy Planet will be filled with some of the most interesting and energetic wings of the current times we recognize that there are other planets out there. We want our relationship to those places to be friendly. We intend to send clear text transmissions that we hope make it to these other locations but, and importantly, we will attempt to highlight the exciting things going on at other places (on occasion). We want to respect the time that other groups have put into their projects and that means sharing what we know, what we are doing, and learning from others. We hope for the best of cross-pollination without being infected by the worst effects of political flattening that happens in coalition projects.
There will be links, offers of support, and sociability as a principle between the Anarchy Planet and the others in our universe.
