NEPAD Council and ICT Africa 2008

The NEPAD Council is now lobbying on behalf of SWANsat by recommending that the AU grant landing rights to SWANsat in return for SWANsat providing 200 free video channels to each member state of the AU and to the AU's Office of the Secretariat. The NEPAD Council endorses SWANsat as a

worthwhile initiative for Africa, provided the promised €1 per 2 Meg/second of symmetric bandwidth for third world countries will indeed be achievable. We will be willing to endorse the project based on that assumption.

We'll be presenting a special tutorial workshop on how SWANsat will serve as a modern Marshall Plan for the African Union at the NEPAD Council's ICT Africa 2008 conference from 13-15 February 2008 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. ICT Africa 2008 will address a wide range of ICT issues in Africa. The conference will bring together engineers, developers, leaders, managers, educators, financiers, and representatives from all over Africa.

As word begins to circulate around the world about
SWANsat's potential—everything from its use as a means to alleviate world poverty to its capacity to deliver low-cost ICT to developing nations, sooner or later various people would begin to comment on the SWANsat System. Here's a representative sample:

YouTube: SWANsat — Bridging the Digital Divide
Rajeev Choudhury's posting of a video of our presentation at the FIT Nepal conference in March 2006 regarding
SWANsat. Mr. Choudhury was responsible for posting an excellent and accurate summary of what SWANsat is on the Wikipedia Encyclopedia web site. Due to a libelous campaign from an individual who claimed that Mr. Choudhury's posting ID "WMD" was a pseudonym for SWANsat founder Dr. William Welty, the Wikipedia article about SWANsat that Mr. Choudhury wrote was de-listed from Wikipedia.
