I like people with dreams and great ideas.
I really like people who try hard to make their dreams come true.
Every once in a while that I find out an interesting project that I could participate or help it evolve, I support it.

Especially if this comes from a Greek person!

Kostas Grammatis, believes passionately that access to information is a human right and founded ahumanright.org to pursue his vision of a connected world.

26.5% of the world has Internet access today. This can and should change.

Please take some minutes of your time to watch his speach at TEDx Athens 2010.

In a few words, one of his ideas is to be able to provide Internet access to everyone in the world for FREE, even a small bandwidth and an SMS service. Other people that have more bandwidth needs, they will pay for more advanced services.

The main target is… to Buy A Sattelite! (yes, that’s right).
A company named TerreStar, the owner of the world’s most capable communication satellite just went bankrupt. So Kosta’s team are fundraising to buy it,
and move it over a place that people really need it in order to connect millions of people who will turn access into opportunity.

Nothing is imposible!

So please spread the word, visit:
http://buythissatellite.org/
an donate!
