I've been pretty quiet about what I've been working on lately.
As you know, for the past year I've been working on a book titled, Antinet Zettelkasten. It's a 594-page tomb. It packs everything you'll ever want to know about the best system there is for developing knowledge (the old way, the deliberate way, the analog way—the best way).
Anyway, the book has been done for a while now and I'm gearing up for the launch.
In roughly one month, the book will be launched into the world. Yes, you will finally have this book in your hands in one month.
I'm absolutely certain it will help you rethink the way you think. It will introduce better workflows into your practices of reading, researching, writing, and thinking.
In brief, it will turn you into a reading, writing, and thinking machine.
I can't wait to share it with you!
In the past year, our movement has grown. Roughly a year ago, we barely had any members on Reddit. Now, we have 1.1k subscribers and counting! My YouTube channel has grown to over 2,000 subscribers, and so has my email list.
In brief, we have a community of thousands of people who believe in slowing down and developing knowledge the best way—by hand!
Anyway, the Antinet movement is alive and kicking, and I wanted to reflect on the growth we've experienced.
But, enough of that. What I want to show you today is a sneak peek of what's to come.
I just recorded a video that will be used on the book's website come launch day.
Nobody in the world has seen this video until now. It's hot off the press and I know it will get you hyped.
Here it is:
Mark your calendars for the first week of December. The release date is set for December 9th at 11:00 a.m. PT!
I have printed only 500 copies of the book, and 40 of them are going to be sent out to my crazies who hand-wrote to me a year ago!
Therefore, there are only 460 copies left of the book.
I've locked in a special bulk-printing discount with a shop located in Taylor, Michigan. They were able to get a super high quality book created at a fraction of the price Amazon charges!
For my people (for you), for my Antinetters, I'll be making the book available AT COST. That means, you'll only pay the price of printing, shipping, and fulfillment. I'll be making this special price available on my website. The price will be less than half of what Amazon forces me to charge for the physical version!
In brief, I will not be making a penny off the sale of the physical version of the book. And I'm 1,000% fine with that.
Because I'm a saint, for one.
And two, because I want to get the physical version into as many hands as possible.
I probably don't have to convince you, but, I'll make a case for it anyway: There's a certain magic to reading a physical book instead of a digital one. I want you to experience that magic.
The Antinet Zettelkasten is a beast. It contains over one-hundred colored photographs and diagrams. It also contains deeply researched history of analog knowledge systems.
It will help you ingest books like a professor, and write without experiencing writer's block (or impostor syndrome).
Anyway, I can't wait until December 9th at 11:00 a.m. PT to get the book in your hands!
Stay crispy, my friend.

"A Man Who Is Just Getting Started Building an Analog Knowledge Revolution"
P.S. To those who are on the application list for my Neo-Intellectual Institute, I've got some good news! Because of the holidays and, because of my book launch, I've decided to launch the next enrollment class of the Neo-Intellectual institute in January (AFTER the holidays). Stay tuned, and stay crispy.
P.P.S. If you don't know what the hell I'm referring to, check this out: https://www.neointellectual.institute/welcome/
P.P.P.S. What a crazy week in the crypto markets, eh? I've been checking Twitter like crazy. I've been gorging news about FTX like a crack addict. My (tolerant) fiancé legitimately thinks I'm addicted to my phone (and I think she's right). I know, I know… You're thinking: Scott, you're Mr. Analog! You're not supposed to be addicted to your phone! I get it. It just goes to show how insidious digital devices are. One of my neo-intellectuals switched to using a "dumbphone". Yes, that's right, a "dumbphone." This is basically a phone that doesn't possess all of the crazy addictive features of smartphones. I'm thinking about getting one… Hmm… If you have any experiences in this realm. feel free to reply to this email and share them with me!
P.P.P.P.S. Don't feel bad about me not making a penny off the physical version of the book. I'm confident that by giving you something that transforms your life (and mind), you'll be more receptive to other things I share in the future. That's why I'm OK with not making a profit from the book in the short term.
