‘Arivina Alegalu’ first Kannada e-book on FOSS/Science/Technology released under OpenContent project by Sanchaya team in 2011 to celebrate the freedom of FOSS during Indian independence day celebrations. The project aims to make technology reachable to common man in simple language through people who love language and technology. A young team of writers/technology users started contributing to this project enthusiastically and in 2012 it sees its second release.
Being online still doesn’t help us fulfill our dream of reaching common man. Hence, we always tried finding options to reach out outside internet.
Today, it was an another milestone accomplishment of this project by getting itself printed on ‘Samyukta Karnataka’ Kannada news daily… (Find its online edition here – http://epaper.samyukthakarnataka.com) and secondly, Arivina Alegalu becomes the first e-book under ‘Creative Commons’ CC-By-SA-NA to be printed on any Kannada news daily. We are expecting this project to reach millions of people, inspire and encourage more Kannadiga’s to start contributing technical, scientific and technological writing to literature in one or the other ways.
Kudo’s to entire team and contributors on this occasion.
