To be clear, The Lantern is a device that allows offline access to the Internet. The idea is to provide a device that is constantly downloading information via radio waves broadcast by Outernet from space. The service, which although passive is free, claims to be able to bypass government censorship while providing knowledge. More info here.
All data consumed on Lantern is anonymous. Access to news, civic information, commodity prices, weather, construction plans for open source farm machinery...anything. Outernet eradicates information poverty and censorship everywhere on Earth. Since Lantern is so small, it can be used discreetly. Can't buy Lantern in your part of the world? We show you how to build one.
