Hi Mel ~ That's great on the Chinese version. Thank you so much!  This
will also be helpful in my work with Chinese language and TESOL teaching
resources for children. Looks like I have an invitation to present at
China's annual national HIT conference at the end of Sept. Just need to
finalize topics based on their needs. I will take the XO with me. Am I
correct to recall that China decided not to originally participate in
OLPC? However if I can position the XO in the telehealth area with all
the great work the folks are doing it might be an alternative path to
bring it in. Just an idea for the group.


I'll begin looking at the children's books.

	Yes, I would love to have a OLPC presentation in Chinese say in
about 30 to 90 days. 

Awesome. Can you remind me about this in about a week when I'm back in
Boston? I'll be in a much better position to get presentation resources
then - it'll be a self-running overview of OLPC and getting involved in
general, though if you want a Health-specific segment I can try to put
one in (my Mandarin vocabulary for medical terms is nonexistent,
though). A good, self-running overview presentation is something we
should have for ease of grassroots outreach, anyway.

	Mel, I'd be happy to start on the conversion of one of the
children's books to see how it turns out.

Thanks! http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Childrens_Health_Books is the link;
Chris found and posted (thanks, Chris!) links to all the books there,
and we don't really have a good process for digitizing/converting these
beyond the brief strawman outline I posted on that page, so if you can
take one of the books and try to figure out a good process for doing the
rest, and use that first book as an example to show others how to do it,
that would be incredibly helpful.

We've got some new developers from Linuxfest Northwest who are looking
for ways to contribute, so if anyone has development (mostly software)
that they want done with a good solid overview of what needs to be
implemented, and has time to mentor a new contributor in getting started
with XO dev, Iain and I might be able to find you folks. Holler back.
