Linking Everest: The story of how volunteers from four continents assembled donated equipment to combine VSAT, WiFi and VOIP in the high Himalaya.  Once again, Dave Hughes was involved!  The popular press (CNN, NYT) carried articles about the Everest Base Camp cyber-cafe, but this longer article talks about the intention of the project to reverse brain drain and raise educational opportunities.  Great photo gallery also online.  3:33:04 PM  permalink
