ABOUT

We refuse to live in a world where random strangers become the arbiters, judge, and jury of the ideas we are allowed to have, the curiosity we are allowed to nurture, or the books we are allowed to read. Ignorance is not bliss, but it is a powerful tool for controlling other people, as history has proven again and again. We believe the human spirit and intellectual curiosity should be celebrated, not persecuted, shamed, or threatened. The Eternal Access Project permanently, irrefutably protects, preserves, and publicly shares the inviolable words, ideas, and contents of books that have been banned either in years past or are being actively threatened today.

Using customized long-term memory storage that is certified to last at least 2,000 years or longer, we are preserving digital copies of banned books in protected vaults located deep in the Arctic Permafrost. To protect these threatened books and ideas for future civilizations, these digital files will be accessible by the public should other sources become inaccessible or cease to exist.

 

To all the oppressors of knowledge and thought today who are working to ban books and ideas from your local communities, states, countries, or from entire populations, know this: the books and ideas protected by the Eternal Access Project will far outlive you, your forbears, and your efforts at oppression, suppression, and regression.

The Eternal Access Project was founded by Daniel Farber Huang, a documentary photographer, strategic advisor, author, and independent humanitarian advocate. His documentary work has been exhibited at Amnesty International, the Middle East Institute, and numerous universities and colleges. His work is included in the permanent collections of The International Center of Photography, The Museum of the City of New York, New-York Historical Society, Museum of Chinese in the Americas, New York City Fire Museum and other institutions. ​As an independent humanitarian advocate, Daniel has documented refugee camps around the world, and has actively raised awareness through multiple TEDx Talks and other platforms. He has authored multiple books on privacy, cybersecurity, and technology. 

Daniel earned his Master’s degree (A.L.M.) in Journalism and a Certificate in International Security from Harvard University, an M.B.A. from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania in Finance and Entrepreneurial Management, and a B.A. from New York University in Economics.
