Orthodox Samizdat

I was thinking this past weekend how there is a intellectually & religiously interesting samizdat (underground literature, though Professor Jeffrey Woolf first used that term in this context) of Orthodox Jewish literature, including unpublished papers, unfinished papers, lectures & shiurim that were never transcribed, and classnotes. I have spent time over the years amassing a sizeable collection of this material. If people know where to look, they can find a vibrant intellectual life that goes under the radar screen of most people who pick up their knowledge from the internet, books, & Jewish periodicals.
