Dear Greg:

(1) Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT I below) in response to
Reference (a) above.
(2) Albeit very belated, my wholehearted congratulations to your
success of extending your GLORIAD to Egypt at 1 Gbps!!

(3) I am also very happy to hear of your strong willingness to extend it
further to Cape Code of South Africa through “Africa Connect to Europe
(ACE)” ultra high speed (5 tera bps) optical submarine cable through
the arrangement with Baharicom (References (a), (c) and (d) above).

Let’s discuss about this at our mtg at Stevens Institute of Techonology in
the afternoon of March 29th — see Reference (d) above.

Let’s work together on GEWS/GUS projects through those broadband
optical fiber net — its inventor, Dr. Thomas Mensah will be at our mtg at
the Stevens Institute of Technology. The connecting distributed
simulation models of GEWS?ECOWAS countries through those
broadband Internet for policy planning of their co-prosperity is the next
step of Internet development.

(4) I am also very delighted to hear of your willingness to provide us
with the “GLOSAS Community Site” for our web discussion as similar to
yours in Reference (b) above. This is exactly the one we discussed at
our mtg on GEWS at the Quarter Club in Manhattan yesterday, and
everybody expressed its urgent need. So, pls set it up at your earliest
convenience. Many, many thanks in advance.

Dear Victor, Mool and All:

(5) Pls visit very excellent and interesting web sites of GLORIAD at the
bottom of Greg’s msg marked as “Information re: GLORIAD.”

Dear Greg:

(6) Will see you then through Skype during our mtg at Stevens Institute
of Technology in the afternoon of March 29th (Reference (d) above).

Best, Tak

Dear Tak,

There is a chance that I could be in New York area
at about that time - but, in any case, I would be glad
to participate by skype. I will be really happy if we could
begin work together in Africa. You may know that we
finally got our first GLORIAD link (1 Gbps) operational in
Africa (to Cairo, Egypt) December 21, 2011 - and
we've received a USAID grant to begin the new
"GLORIAD in Africa" program. After all these years,
I'll be so glad if we could work directly on all this
activity.

I've enclosed some links/information below as an
update re: recent gloriad activities. Please feel free
to share as you see best.

Best wishes,

Greg

p.s. Tak, I recently established for our GLORIAD
community a social media site to help coordinate/communicate
information. I've enclosed a PDF below which shows some
screenshots to give you an idea of the utility - I would be happy
to set up a similar site for you on F&P if you would find it useful
for your GLOSAS programs.
.
I think it is a useful way of community building and a great
complement to email listservers.
