Hola Samuel.

Are you thinking of developing a new activity-soft similar to
Browser-Activity, which already has some educational areas
(science,books, media,images and others) from wilkipedia-offline? I
mean, a new activity apart from the Browser containig items from
wikipedia offline.

We are a creating a new group of software developers interested in
shared experiencies knowlage in XO's computers. In the midlle of may
we had the first meeting, we had a long talk where we looked for
coincidences, we shared projects and thought what to do together.we
concluded the following

To do periodic meeting with true objectives and activities.not to wate time
To invite people who want to work
To work in the use of computer especially in models destinate to
education project called 1:1
To share development with other developers, especially with teachers
who use this programs and can tell us their educational vision.
To look for the best way to colaborate on line with other actual
projects (of laboratories or research university group or indpendent
To generate diferents workings groups with the same aims but with
diferent especific areas of applicattions:Python, Etoys, Fedora/SUGAR,
Procesos Pedagogicos1:1 (como se traduce ???)
We would like to reach in the short and intermediate time the following:

To keep active in argentina the espirit of working in: OLPC and SUGAR LAB
To interact with pre existent experiences such as :
To create SUGARLAB in Argentina
To help to have more XO's in classrooms in Argentina
