Can't wait to see people Saturday all-day in NYC (many of us busing all 
the way from Boston!) and also for a Great Haitian Dinner in Brooklyn -- 
once we kick out the reporters and the hard work's well-begun :-)

> Even if you cannot make it to Saturday's full-day NYC Crisis Camp 
> events (http://www.eventbrite.com/event/558710117) plz join our 
> Haitian Creole for Education Community Dinner right afterwards, 
> co-hosted with the One Laptop per Child/Sugar Labs NYC Volunteer 
> Community, at superb Haitian Restaurant /KOMBIT!/
>     279 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn
>     http://KombitRestaurant.com
>     5:30PM Saturday, Feb 6
> All welcome -- thanks for closing your laptop for an evening to talk 
> about what a Kreyol E-Learning really means for those Haitian children 
> who soon will be opening Theirs.
> RSVP to holt @ laptop.org with your party size, so I can adjust the 
> growing reservation!
> Most important, thanks all for investing your life's greatest skills 
> this year in creating a foundation for Haiti's Library of Alexandria 
> for Education, which we invite you to do starting here: 
> http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Haitian_Creole_Translation_for_Education
> Later Carmina will preview a colorful web site to help facilitate 
> community-organizing of quality Kreyol works to this end, in whatever 
> form this "Peoples Library" takes.
> But one Book at a Time: /we here are intentionally starting 
> translation with just 1 book, and a long horizon/.  That is 
> http://laptop.org/manual created by deeply dedicated OLPC/Sugar 
> volunteers, and very soon to be translated to Kreyol for Haitian kids 
> (aged 5 to 95) thanks to the coordination of some Heroic people in 
> NYC's Haitian community especially.  So these exact same 5-year olds 
> might remember their little community guide to a more 
> creative-collaborative 21st century, if not the elders who wrote it 
> back in 2010 -- when these kids turn 95 too.  No matter how high the 
> oceans in that year when that next (22nd) century quickly arrives...
