Re: [mendenyo] Update on Includer and Flash Drives
- Dear Colleagues,I am back and immensely happy with the on going activities. I am going beyond my limit and enlarging my experience, which I owe to this lab; MS. We need to be more knowledge focused and succeed. I thank Ricardo for the good projections towards us and Africa in general. We are looking forward for more people to come, in to help with our WiFi Plan implementation! now that we are looking for the Purchase of a VAST for Internet connection and then work on the modalities for getting required repeaters for our area.My schedule is going to be busy as i am going out to Dar es salaam in the next one week. This is going to be a very busy month for me before i sit down for my college work which I must also complete before I Start the real implementation of the community WiFi connection. I need some breathing space before I go to the next phase of my project. The Election BUZZ and noise is Kenya is making it difficult to calculate our next move as everybody is hoping for another government let's wait and see.I would very much happy to receive calls from you Asif, Maria, and possibly Andrius for some adjustments to the on going activities involving me and all of you.
Thank you again for helping us this summer with our video bridge. Yes, I
said that I would send you flash drives and I haven't done this yet. My plan
is to prepare a 100 MB archive of our lab's content in these next few days or
next week and then either George Christian Jeyaraj will put them on flash
drives and send them out from Lithuania or I will get them in Chicago and
send them out from there.
Ricardo, Sasha Mrkailo has organized 100 MB of content, see
http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?FlashDriveContent and now it would be great
to do special collections (in 100 MB) of software (perhaps with textbooks) or
of content specific to some area such as agriculture, wifi, Internet cafes,
I spoke yesterday with Lithuania's Foreign Ministry. They received our
proposal for the USB Flash Drive Editor "Includer" http://www.includer.org
and now they need two weeks to review it.
I spoke several days ago with Peter Burgess and he told me his deepest value
in life "An accountable network of human energy" and his investigatory
question: How can we help the decision making process so we can get a lot
more benefit from the science and technology thinking that is available? How
can we eliminate the bad, value destroying decisions which dominate the
space? Peter, you can work on this at Mendenyo and then at some point create
and lead a new group based on your value.
Samwel wrote earlier that he would be offline for about a week.

and looking forward to continue with our correspondance. By the way did you
manage to send the flash disks.
