This handbook is a prototype-in-progress for a much cooler peer-to-peer wiki system. Our goal is to create a solarpunk "Library of Alexandria" that lives in a distributed mesh, which makes it next to impossible to delete or destroy. Most of the projects in this version of the handbook are focused on hard/software, networking, and communication protocols. As we grow we hope to contribute more original research in other areas including bio-tech and botany.

This is a collection of material to learn autarky 99 (economic self-reliance / self-supply) for individuals, households and villages. All materials relevant for that can be included here, as long as they are more comprehensive than the ubiquitous article format. Only material that is free to download is of interest here (with a few exceptions). Here is what we found so far, and you’re welcome to extend it (just edit away, this is a wiki).

The Public Domain Manifesto.
A public domain collection of corpora for training AI ML bots. Consists of many YAML files containing key/value data on many different subjects. Each category contains multiple documents about different related subjects. You won't be able to drop these into your code randomly, you'll need to write a fairly simple parser tuned to the document's schema. There are several libraries in different programming languages for efficiently using one or more of these files in your own project.
