Actually, I found the discussion part more interesting (maybe because  
I am familiar with many of the educational ideas David re-iterated).

But the discussion of the strategic gap in actual software development  
for the OLPC platform should be interesting to any developer (hence  
I'm taking liberty to forward to devel@). Or the plea to focus on the  
needs of the developing countries. Or that we need much more powerful  
creative tools than Pippy, Etoys, or Scratch. Or how we can even  
develop rich activities while the foundations are still being built.  

I urge every developer to listen to this.

PS: It would be interesting to know who was present as I recognized  
only some of the voices (unfortunately the camera did not follow  
speakers in the discussion).
