As the IGF is approaching, and there are so many sessions looking at
how can we really connect the next billion, it is perfect timing to
invite you to explore the Final Report produced by the team of the
LibreRouter project, available for download from the Seed Alliance
The work of the Seed Alliance to support Community Wireless has been
funded over the last 2 years by IDRC and it will be enhanced by the
contribution from Internet Society so we see this report as a
wonderful opportunity to reflect on what comes next and the challenges
ahead, not only for those on the field working so hard to get this
ideas off the grown and into working products, but for all of us,
committed to expand and improve local access.
Your friends and colleagues Carlos and Nico, and all the people that
has rooted for them and got on board this project (mentioned on the
report) deserve an applause! Well done! I hope it is just the
beginning for LibreRouter and that we will continue to learn more as
the devices get deployed and more networks get connected.
LibreRouter team will be at the IGF, and presenting at the WS Workshop
71 about devices/infrastructure, content and innovative business
models as drivers for connectivity http://sched.co/CSCw
and will be at
the Seed Alliance booth on Wednesday to do a demonstration of the
prototype. If you are interested to join, please let Carolina Caeiro
from LACNIC know, as she is organizing it.
Help us to spread the word about this development!
I wish you all the very best at the IGF and safe travels back home to
spend Christmas and New Year’s with friends and family.
Best wishes for 2018!
