Finding shortcomings is only possible if we get the information. But
what do I read :
@Satish : That is not the website of OLPC India. (short response !)
@Manu : Progress has come along slowly with success and mistakes.
olpc.co.in has been an initiative belonging to the latter category.
I feel some unease to talk about olpc.co.in and I suppose I am not the
only one to feel that.
Now, what is happening with the Digital Bridge Foundation ? That was a
mistake too ? Are you ready to communicate about it ?
And what about this OLPC India ? If I read the signature of Satish
Jha, it is not even an indian society :
OLPC India, One Cambridge Center, 10th Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141. Is
it a temporary address ? What will be the official structure of OLPC
Transparency is not posting messages about unreachable goals, it is to
keep supporters and volunteers informed about what is going on. We had
a lot of expectations about olpc.co.in and now we read "That is not
the website of OLPC India.", so where is the website of OLPC India ?
