Wanted: Content Partners

Outernet is looking for content partners who are aligned with our mission of creating humanity's public library. Much of the content that Outernet broadcasts will already be in the public domain or available under a creative commons license. Even so, we believe that if our missions are shared, we can accomplish more together rather than Outernet just quietly broadcasting a potential partner's content over our network. Project Gutenberg, one of Outernet's early content partners, is an excellent example of this.

If you or your organization has content that you believe would enhance Outernet's mission, please get in touch with us. Here are some notes for potential content partners:

We are working with all types of organizations, from for-profits to non-profits and governments.

We are interested in any type of content. Outernet broadcasts bits, so text, audio, video, and software are all fair game.

When it comes to licenses, it is easiest to broadcast content that is either in the public domain or under a creative commons license. However, we are working with partners to adequately address copyright.

With all Outernet content, we offer the only vehicle to achieve truly global distribution. The Outernet signal will soon be available everywhere and will always be free to our users. Do you want your work to touch every human on Earth?

Please contact Outernet's Director of User Engagement, Thane Richard, to inquire about content partnerships. Email
