The TAO Collective or The Anarchy Organization is a Canada-based radical and non-profit computer service provider, offering free email and web hosting in exchange for mutual aid. As the first of its kind in North America, it has helped to spawn another radical tech group called resist.ca as well as inspire others.
The organization is founded on anarchist principles of self-determination, cooperation, and liberty, values expressed by the empowerment of everyday activists in possessing non-corporate and non-state-controlled Internet tools. The group now goes by the name of OAT (TAO backwards and "organizing autonomous telecomms"). Thousands of radical activist members who are engaged in a variety of anti-corporate, anti-racist, anarchist, anti-war, and environmental movements now use OAT services.
