Ndiyo: Towards Sustainable IT for the World...O'Reilly ETel 2007, San Francisco, 2007-03-01
The Ndiyo project is developing a new, more affordable and more sustainable model of computing to address some of the real problems caused by the prevalance of the PC paradigm. The Ndiyo approach combines the multi-user nature of the Linux operating system with some novel hardware which can take advantage of it, and so allows new types of multi-user systems to be created. Recent trial deployments in Bangladesh and South Africa have been in conjunction with the mobile service providers in those locations, and the intersection of Ndiyo's work with the mobile networks, and with telephony in general, is an interesting one.
