A fellow iSchool
student forwarded me a link to Tim O'Reilly's blog on the new wireless networking in developing regions book
. I think someone (me?) already posted about the book
, available for free download online. (So much for that book we were going to write.)
What stands out to me (as a potential opportunity for the general interested public) is this quote:
I had hoped to get a couple of geek volunteers to take on the job of "remixing" content from existing O'Reilly books into some books specifically targeted to developing countries.
So my general question becomes - what types of O'Reilly content are people in developing countries interested in? What books are being donated - and more importantly - used? What would be the target audience for the remixed content? And how would these people access (and print?) it?
