Someone else’s Knight proposal — “Includer”

One concern about the shift of news and other information from paper to digital media is the potential to leave some of the public behind.

Andrius Kulikauskas and the Minciu Sodas laboratory is working on this problem with a Knight proposal for a digital “Includer,” or Flash Drive Editor.

It would be “a device for reading and writing text files (such as emails) stored on any USB flash drive. It is optimized for people in Africa with marginal Internet access so that online community might help them reach out locally.”
