Syed Karim On Why He Founded Outernet

"My father grew up about two hours east of Calcutta. I remember him telling me that on a number of occasions, and at the behest of his father, he would read the dictionary by the light of a hurricane lamp... imagine if there was a way to feed a hungry mind without charging a dime?"

The story was published today on the CNN website. Read it, share it... you know the drill.

Help Shape the Outernet Broadcast

Next week we will release a comprehensive outline of how the Outernet broadcast will work and what it will contain. So far, we have used examples such as news, Wikipedia, Khan Academy, weather, and disaster information. No more examples.

Here is some of what we will be releasing:
  • A list of what information sources Outernet will use
  • Editorial guidelines that inform content selection
  • How you can request content from Outernet and how your request is handled
  • Sponsored content, ads, how we make money and how that fits in
  • Much more...
We will host various public discussions for feedback on this draft of our broadcast outline before getting to work on implementing it. 

As our loyal supporters, we value your opinion. We will give you advance access so you can have a first look.

We can't wait to hear what you think.


And if you haven't bought a Lantern yet, make sure to visit our IndieGoGo campaign and get this cutting edge piece of technology

Thank you for your support and, as always, we welcome your feedback.
