Hi, Paul and all - quick update.
The folks over at OLPCnews and I just had a quick conversation and they
asked if it would be okay to cover the discussion we've just started on
Right now it's one-sided (read: full of Mel pontificating - we haven't
really given you enough time to respond), but they suggested a first
post to start ongoing coverage of this conversation, and then talking
with you when you have time to cover your perspective/responses to the
grassroots list, so that you get to share your story and your thoughts
too. They have a wide readership among the various OLPC community groups
and can probably help us understand each other better.
(Don't let this distract you from the work you have to do to get this
program to exist, though! I'm hoping the time investment in "working
with the community" will pay off as people find ways to pitch in and
help you make this happen in a stronger way.)
PS: I've gotten a number of private emails since this thread started,
and they're full of great insights - I'd love to see some of those
thoughts shared with this list as well. Don't leave me standing
awkwardly alone here. ;)
