Crypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias. A wide-ranging collection of writings on emerging political structures in cyberspace.

That's the premise of philosopher Peter Ludlow and most of the contributors to his Crypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias, and it's hard to argue otherwise after reading it. Deliberately freeing the volume from the shackles. Deliberately freeing the volume from the shackles of academic rigor (and jargon), Ludlow draws deeply from the cyber-underground and mixes classic rants with post-millennial realism.

Pirate utopias were defined by anarchist writer Peter Lamborn Wilson, who coined the term in his 1995 book Pirate Utopias: Moorish Corsairs & European Renegadoes as secret islands once used for supply purposes by pirates

Pirate utopias were defined by anarchist writer Peter Lamborn Wilson, who coined the term in his 1995 book Pirate Utopias: Moorish Corsairs & European Renegadoes as secret islands once used for supply purposes by pirates. Wilson's concept is largely based on speculation, although he admits to adding a bit of fantasy to the idea.

While many online experiments will fail, Ludlow argues that given the synergy of the online world, new and superior governance structures may emerge. Indeed, utopian visions are not out of place, provided that we understand the new utopias to be fleeting localized "islands in the Net" and not permanent institutions. The book is organized in five sections.

A wide-ranging collection of writings on emerging political structures in cyberspace.

In Crypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias, Peter Ludlow extends the approach he used so successfully in High Noon on the Electronic Frontier, offering a collection of writings that reflects the eclectic nature of the online world, as well as its tremendous energy and creativity. This time the subject is the emergence of governance structures within online communities and the visions of political sovereignty shaping some of those communities. Ludlow views virtual communities as laboratories for conducting experiments in the construction of new societies and governance structures. While many online experiments will fail, Ludlow argues that given the synergy of the online world, new and superior governance structures may emerge. Indeed, utopian visions are not out of place, provided that we understand the new utopias to be fleeting localized "islands in the Net" and not permanent institutions.

The book is organized in five sections. The first section considers the sovereignty of the Internet. The second section asks how widespread access to resources such as Pretty Good Privacy and anonymous remailers allows the possibility of "Crypto Anarchy"―essentially carving out space for activities that lie outside the purview of nation states and other traditional powers. The third section shows how the growth of e-commerce is raising questions of legal jurisdiction and taxation for which the geographic boundaries of nation-states are obsolete. The fourth section looks at specific experimental governance structures evolved by online communities. The fifth section considers utopian and anti-utopian visions for cyberspace.

A 2001 follow-up to Peter Ludlow's 1996 "High Noon on the Electronic Frontier", this book is in a very similar format and, like "High Noon" is absolutely essential background reading for anyone seriously interested in understanding what is going on on-line today and in the future. Although Ludlow clearly has his own preferences and passions, in both of these books he does a great job presenting essays and other writings on various sides of the core issues at stake. Both provide, as well, valuable perspectives on the state of the world on-line as of the dates of their publication and the most recent (then) steps by which it had come to be there. To understand today's environment dominated by Google, Facebook, and Twitter you really do need the historical foundation Ludlow's books provide. Get 'em and read 'em. It will amply repay your expenses to buy them and your time to read them!

Need to know where the Internet society came from? Where it thinks it is? When it can be regulated? What the future plans of political bodies and their legal policies may be?
Want it all in one book? Well, this is as close as it comes today (2002) and it is an exceptional piece of editorial work selecting the material and organizing it so well.
In the age of "homeland security" policy butting heads with the EU privacy laws...this is a fine balance of views.

a little dated

pretty good read, time consuming as there is a lot of technical information but helpful and worth the investigation into it.

Crypto Anarchy is an interesting read, unfortunately, the vast majority (in fact, almost all of them) of the writings years old or available free on-line.
While many of the articles are about the eclectic nature of the net, the reality is that the net has simply turned into another business tool and the utopia that the net was supposed to create never materialized.
As an example, Ludlow devotes a number of pages to Barlow's "Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace". Both the declaration and the retort to it are well over five years old and have been already been written about in myriad times.
While many of the articles are dated and obsolete, the single timely and well-written article is by Nathan Newman on the issue of taxes for e-commerce transactions.
Overall, Crypto Anarchy is an interesting reading of old articles.

As a media activist, I'm constantly confronted by people who don't understand that the real revolution in media is not the commercial internet, but the "undernet" of hidden economies and private interchanges. Ludlow's book gets it right, avoiding the common misconceptions about the Internet to show why it's not just the battleground for big companies, but the playground for a real revolutionary force. What I really like in this book is the way he collects some of the classic (but under-read) articles on the possibilities of the new media and adds in some intense new stuff. It's like a one-stop shop for the coming age of controlled digital chaos. You NEED to read this book if you want to understand what the future of activism is going to be.

Ludlow has done it again. His justifiably esteemed High Noon zapped those of us who anachronistically still read ink smudges on paper with a set of electronically vibrant cybermessages from the Electronic Frontier. In Cypto Anarchy, Cyberstates, and Pirate Utopias he delivers a second installment. Here the messages are cyberpolitical: describing, analyzing, imagining, and revelling in the new forms of social, intellectual, and political organization that the net already does, definitely will, maybe could, or just conceivably might make a reality. Half serious argument, half bonzo manifesto, and in both halves some of the sharpest political thinking now in process.
With all the B.S. about cyberspace showing up in the newspapers and dopey newsmagazines its about "Time" somebody got it right. This is what makes the whole internet/underground culture thing interesting. Lots of great essays on how the new way is actually changing the way people live and interact. If your take on electronic culture comes from reading the kiddie-porn articles and "death of the internet" stuff in the mainstream media, you're missing the big picture. thank you, peter ludlow!!!!!
