Mission 2007

This is maybe the most important KM project around. Objective is the creation of Knowlege Centers in each one of over 600,000 villages in India by 2007.
From the mission page :
What is now needed is the launching of a self-propelling, self-replicating and self-sustaining model of ICT for rural regeneration and prosperity [...] The term “knowledge center” was chosen because at the village level there is need for value addition to generic information by converting it into local-specific knowledge [...] The Mission will be top-down in its approach to technological connectivity, but bottom-up in relation to content and knowledge management.
