Commitment to Action

eGranary Community Information Portal (CIP)

Commitment by

Intel Corporation

In 2008, Intel jointly announced a commitment with the WiderNet Project to create an eGranary Community Information Portal (CIP). The goal of this collaboration is to bring web content to communities around the world who lack adequate internet access. Through this commitment, local users will be able to easily add, edit, and search local content to an eGranary Digital library, an off-line collection of over 1,200 websites and CD-ROMs that provide internet-like services over local area networks at speeds thousands of times faster than typical internet connections.
As of April 2011, the eGranary team had completed the development of the CIP and created their own version of a web browser to facilitate use of the eGranary. The CIP was estimated to be available to 62,000 users at over 9,000 computers.
