human interest details

ISumaTV is doing content distribution in Northern regions of Canada using git-annex, and free software built on top of it. I like to imagine this involves bush planes and dog sleds and satellite receivers with my software on them, but I really don't know the human-interest details.

We programmers so rarely do, often all we get to see is the bug reports.. and are an interesting reads anyhow.

the hard drives and machines are usually shipped by planes, and the uplink is satellite... there way more folklore than we like to think up there... a lot of the original culture is being lost in our globalized nightmare, unfortunately... which is exactly one of the things isuma is trying to adress!
