Suggest: Making a wiki page on wiki.laptop.org, called ISOS - on a subtitle,
put "Interactive Sugar Online Simulation" without the dashes as a subtitle,
copy in information from email (without email addresses)
Great idea. Suggesting putting external links, investigating thoughts such
- wixi, swixi -- there are a couple of web 2.0 startups that are doing
things like this. I think it's critical personally that someone would
develop a sugar os, web launchable platform.
- think about developing documentation to help make it easier for people to
install the vmware player -- investigate the build that is available for
simulating sugar OS -- ask around to see if it's possible to launch through
web services -- probably not
- search devel list archives for recent mention of parallels version of
- look for existing page on emulators, emulation, see if it is possible to
make it more understandable to people, and if not, make a simplified
version, as a step towards the easy version for everyone.
- stage 1: suggest consider seeing if someone can make a flash-based
simulation, not as good as full OS -- but at least it is something. easy,
- stage 2: fuller interactivity -- guessing that adobe flex, air, one of the
rich media application environments could work
- stage 3: holy grail -- full os simulation -- sugar os application server,
sugar os sitting on the back end, wonderful wonderful
And unless this is already habit for you (I need to learn it myself) --
publish early, publish often, meaning try to pick a day once a week (ex:
sunday), to put some notes on wiki page as to how things are going so
interested people can see how it goes.

"Fascinating for me to sit here and realize the interplay and influence that
music can have -- it is a part of my life, yet I haven't continued as I
could, partly out of thinking "there are more important things". but it has
it's place. i am sitting at olpc offices, and someone is playing pink floyd,
and I think music is a gift of creativity that can inspire an atmosphere of
creativity, and the range of such echoes is infinite." - Me
