I recently started working the communications front for a super rad startup
called Open Garden. Essentially, OG is a mobile broadband network that uses
p2p mesh technology to provide internet connectivity between smartphones,
laptops and tablets.
Last night I hopped on a call with some folks in India who run a nonprofit
to help rural farmers tackle problems like soil testing, crop planning,
seed recommendation, etc; They're planning to install Open Garden on their
Android tablets and phones, pooling local networks of 2G and occasionally
3G mobile data to provide internet connectivity to the tablets.
It's a great team doing exciting work. Hit me up if you'd like to hear
