Twice a year, mother organisation ISOC.ORG awards its community grants to whoever has the best plan to promote an open internet. The prize is 10.000 USD and of course, Open Internet joined the race. Last week the mighty head office sent in its questions about open internets’ application.
“What if the app is not finished by January? What if nobody from Bangla Desh is able to get a visa in time? Will you able to get enough downloads to determine the actual presence or absence of blocked applications?”
The cooperation between the Dutch and the Bangla Desh chapter is of course a strong argument in favor of Open Internets’ grant application: “As much as this project is about the open internet, it is about unifying chapters.”
By mid november, we will know whether the 10,000 USD is coming our way.
