Hello outernet team,
I am really excited for outernet technology and I hope you the best.
A couple of questions came to my mind and I would like to share with you.
q1: what is or what was very first aim when you started developing outernet from idea? did you want to develop a new technology to provide free broadcasting media like a library to people? or providing free internet and two way communication methods to people whom live in poor and under developing countries?
if your aim is just providing free broadcasting to people then it is OK .
But if your aim was providing two way communication and internet, then may I know when will you achieve this aim?
q2: how did you come to this point to develop a free library broadcasting to people over satelite? from global survey? since to me radio sets and TV sets over satelite and internet do same jobs they broadcast news free to people, the only thing identifies itself from other media is internet a two way communication including surf web, voice, video and messaging etc. I NEVER want to defeat against outernet, the only thing I don’t understand why you have tried to develop a new method to broadcast library while to me internet is in first priority. wasn’t it better to develop a free internet instead of free library broadcasting?
q3: imagine after a while millions of people use outernet and Lantern to read news from your library. you know every single person has his or her favorites and interests. one likes sports, other likes stories, etc. are you supposed to create a very large library with billions of topics and pages and broadcasted on outernet? there is a limit of 20MB/day of data for Lantern, I am worried I have to use much of it to search the library before I use my data just for what I need.
q4: let’s say I like specific topics about refugees which are happening now in Europe and I want to follow these news. if I use internet there are 10s of TV channels broadcast live news about these topics, but how about outernet? are you supposed to collect all info and news from TV channels and news editors from internet and have them published on outernet?
q5: does a user use his data every single time he browse the library to find his specific topics? if he can’t find his favorites topics then have you identified a solution for him to request have them added to outernet?
I will appreciate your time to clarify these questions.
have a nice day
