The whole world is serving each other using internet technology. Why can't we Nepalese educate our country folk using the internet?

that was a good read homeyji ji
we have the tools and technologies, all thats missing is the willpower 
but there are great project like FOST(video) going on already.
Like the article u referenced to suggest..its the easier transfer of Knowledge and Technologies because that can transform not just Nepal but the whole world.
The work done by research university, organizations, hobbits, etc are not limited by physical boundaries anymore.

I hope to see more coordinated work and relevant technologies being applied to empower nepalese citizen so we improve ourselves and our nation.

Sedif,

Thank you for posting that wonderful video. I feel that a huge part of improving ourself is also educating the people in developed nations, like that video does.  In a world running after the 'latest cheap fads' Nepal echoes the richness of a culture with a very distinct personality.  The video you have posted is a great example of a video that makes a high impact on the American public.

It is inspiring to see many Nepalese who are using sites like facebook to promote videos and articles informing their American friends about Nepal. More and more of us are realizing the opportunity we have to educate and inform from the personal connections that we make while living in the States. 

Whenever I share videos on tourism or on projects going on in Nepal (like the one you have shared), it is always so delightful to see the eyes of my American friends light up. A lot of them are so clueless about how bad things have gotten there. I feel that though there definitely are many limitations amongst the politicians and people in Nepal, and we have a lot of initiative to take, to think that Nepal lives in an isolated vacuum in a global economy is to delude ourself. When my American friends realize how the policies in the developed nations are causing a lot of the problems experienced by Nepalese, and other developing nations, they become really queit. At the end of the discussion almost everyone of them want to know what they can do to help. They want to get involved in bringing awareness too. This type of response is very encouraging.

I brought up the above point in more detail in this forum:

Homeyji,

Thanks for the wonderful read.

The blog entitled "From the Information Age to the Age of Unlimited" is pretty good. And no doubt - communications infrastructure is what a developing nation should get furnished with.

Talk about Nepal, we do have local internet exchanges, Akamai servers, wireless links between villages, Metro Ethernet Services and soon MPLS services, ADSL, Cable Plants, FTTH, Dial-ups - almost all means. We now even peer through FLAG Telecom to reach north america reducing time taken to travel to almost 30% less that what we used to do before. These are great signs for a nation of that size. Software revolution - FOSS, open-source involvement, a new technology task force in the govt and all that .. absolutely wonderful. Nepal is technologically sound - but concentrated to some valleys - IMO.

I just wanted to comment on your blog that Had you talked abt the downside of it too , it would have been wonderful. Internet has been getting more ripples than ever before. People have been hijacking networks more, and even DNS is found to be flawed, which sadly, doesnt have an immediate fix, but a workaround. Internet Governance is another big problem, and problems just follow like - running out of v4 space, transitioning to v6 and reluctance for change. More BOGONs, More SPAMs, More Flaws on the base protocols.

We got pretty networked community, and equally greater challenges ahead of us to maintain the networks from breaking.
