For a long time, I had been wondering how can we distribute Knowledge resources
I came to see Mesh Network as a viable resource that could make it possible.
Today I stumbled upon another interesting project, that could pave way for Free Knowledge.
Outernet looks one such project who apparently run a few satellites around , and we could receive information from them.
But sadly tough the server is more central to their servers, this is a good first step towards Knowledge Availability.
Happily India is widely covered from their satellites.
A few questions that pop up in my head are
- How are they having the funding for this
- What happens if their servers go down.
But a good first step I did appreciate.
My thought further ponders, A Satellite receiver, for a locality, and a combination of mesh networks in that locality could make a amazing things ?
