Sat Mar 13 11:55:23 EST 2010


Meet the guy volunteering his life for OLPC/Sugar on 4 different 
continents, almost 4 years later.
Meet retired R&D director, founder, VP, CTO of embedded technologies at 
http://codewiz.org/wiki/DevelerCompany
Meet Sugar Labs' lead global sysadmin and Harvard School of Education 
part-time student.
Meet a 21st Century Italian Cowboy, who foolishly misses his Commodore 
64... http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Bernie_Innocenti_interview
/Meet *Bernie Innocenti*, original promoter of the $200 laptop that 
makes Microsoft tremble: http://codewiz.org/wiki/TwoHundredDollarLaptop/

Ask him Why he chose to help this poor, landlocked S. American nation of 
only 6million, providing new Sugar learning software?
Ask him How impoverished Paraguay has very patiently worked over 2+ 
years building up to 4000 XO's, more than doubling that soon?
Ask him Where WE can help teachers stop fearing computing, _unleash the 
latent potential of deployments_, sparking kids to collaborate far 
beyond mind-deadening jobs?
Ask him When will our Not-That-Innocenti Italian stop traveling into and 
beyond Asuncion recruiting kids & universities while barely speaking 
Spanish?
/Ask him What YOU can do to invest in Paraguay's digital generation once 
he leaves, onto his next gig in August.....?/

Listen to Bernie's Paraguay Stories Live tomorrow Sunday March 14!
