Would you be interested in hearing about the New Sugar Labs project,
Replacing Textbooks? I should be able to get to Chicago sometime.


Computers with Open Education Resources cost much less than textbooks
in developed countries, making an OLPC project require a negative

OERs for all subjects, at all ages or grade levels, for every country,
in every language needed. Anyone can assist.
