about Keewaytinook Okimakanak, the Kuhkenah Network (K-Net)

and associated broadband applications

By Brian Beaton

<brian.beaton@knet.ca>

Updated November, 2009

The purpose of this document is to provide readers with a list of the publications related to the development and operation of the Kuhkenah Network (K-Net) and the associated applications that utilize and sustain the network. Also included are links to several comprehensive photo and video collections that are available online and that help tell the K-Net story.

Everyone is invited to assist in the ongoing development of this document by sending any references that should be included to Brian Beaton (brianbeaton@knet.ca) so they can be added, corrected and updated. This “living document” will be maintained at http://knet.ca/documents/Online-KNet-reference-material-links.doc

1. Photo galleries

Some of the key photo galleries include:

2. Online videos and multimedia presentations

Online videos are being used more and more to tell the different parts of the K-Net story. Many of these can be found on the http://media.knet.ca site but there are other locations throughout the K-Net web portal (http://knet.ca) that contain various video collections that support the sharing of information about the communities and the development of K-Net. One such archive can be found within the Smart Communities link at http://smart.knet.ca/smart2002/practices.html.



2.1. On-line Multi-Media Presentation …

3. Publications

This collection of K-Net related articles and publications highlights those available online. The collection presents a portion of the material that has been produced to share the K-Net story. Countless presentations, workshops and meetings are also documented on the K-Net web portal, usually captured in the KNEWS – http://knews.knet.ca stories or in one of the application sites.

This collection is in alphabetical order by author, with publications being added as they are produced. As the different ICT supported applications develop, so do the different reports, evaluations and publications that capture their stories. Everyone is encouraged to visit the different web sites off the K-Net portal to learn about the stories that are continuously unfolding in each of the different service areas that are now supported by the Kuhkenah Network.
