Farthest-flung correspondent Xeni Jardin has been doing a series for both NPR and Wired, Hacking the Himalayas. Westerners are bringing cell and web service to the Tibetans in exile in Dharamshala, in northern India.
HIs Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has issued a statement of support for the project and for the Air Jaldi Summit on wireless technologies, to be held in October.

Remember when supporting Tibet was all the rage? FBLA thinks it’s still cool and points out that anyone can donate here. The Dalai Lama will be in Southern California in September, too. Momos will be served.
