Project Gutenberg Announces Partnership with Outernet

Outernet is thrilled to announce a content partnership with Project Gutenberg, the oldest provider of free ebooks in the world. As part of Outernet's launch today, we are offering a selection of a few dozen of Project Gutenberg's most popular ebooks, a library we plan to expand very soon.

Greg Newby, Director of the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation, said:

"I'm thrilled at the Outernet vision of free-to-air broadcast of eBooks and other content. It is Project Gutenberg's mission to encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks. We have a focus on free access to information for all people, in the pursuit of literacy and enlightenment. Outernet has a vision that is wonderfully aligned with Project Gutenberg, encompassing free access, freedom from censorship and monitoring, and unlimited distribution. I am enthusiastic about Outernet's effort to bring eBooks from Project Gutenberg and other great collections to a broader audience."

Syed Karim, CEO of Outernet, said:

"For decades, Project Gutenberg has been pioneering increased access to knowledge and dissemination of the wealth of creativity found in public domain works. Outernet is honored and excited to have Project Gutenberg as both a launch partner and critical element of the Outernet core archive."
