Since the emergence of our species some 300,000 years ago as a cognitive, highly creative species, humanity has survived, thrived and prospered by sharing information and knowledge freely for the common good. Over the past two millennia, ideas, information, knowledge and innovation have become commercialized, a price has been placed on them as “Intellectual Property”. This change has spawned deep inequalities in all the means of survival and growth, and South Africa is the global leader using all measures of inequality within and between its citizens, and between South Africa and the rest of the world. This SAKAN initiative is a small step towards rectifying this very human challenge and flaw, by attempting to connect the unconnected masses in South Africa to the global information society. The tools chosen are the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), the most effective communication tool available to the human species today.
