Kete

Kete is an open source Web 2.0 tool for a community-built digital archive of related material. A Kete (or basket) of topics may be related geographically, by subject, by source or in any other way. Kete enables people with little computer experience to share their stories and songs and memories and photos. It was designed from the ground up to be easily downloaded and configured by a layman for use by small rural communities with poor internet connections and no professional IT support on hand.

This is another world first and is gaining a lot of international attention. Libraries are a backbone to this country - this project is taking the philosophy of libraries to yet another level.
