I'm maybe too pessimistic, but I would be really surprised if this project, at any time, really helps to provide an access (neutral) to the Internet.
More probable: They will try to give a free/cheap access to a set of their online services and so one do the same like AOL or MSN have tried to do 15 years ago. ... or like we do with Wikipedia zero... but, to the contrary to this alliance, Wikimedia has never claimed that they wanted to give access to the Internet. So, IMO, this whole story about internet.org stinks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oFXCXQpJXI Emmanuel Le 23/08/2013 10:25, Leinonen Teemu a écrit : > Hi, > > Have you noticed the new internet.org initiative by Facebook, Samsung, Nokia, > Qualcomm, Ericsson and MediaTek? > > "Internet.org is a global partnership between technology leaders, nonprofits, > local communities and experts who are working together to bring the internet > to the two thirds of the world’s population that doesn’t have it".[1, 2] > > Would it make sense for the WMF's Wikipedia Zero program to collaborate with > this? > > Any comments? > > Best regards, > > - Teemu > >  http://www.internet.org >  > http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/21/technology/facebook-leads-an-effort-to-lower-barriers-to-internet-access.html -- Kiwix - Wikipedia Offline & more * Web: http://www.kiwix.org * Twitter: https://twitter.com/KiwixOffline * more: http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Communication _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
