Hello OLPC Community,
I'm a doctoral candidate in learning technologies at Pepperdine University
and a teacher in San Francisco.
I need two more interviews to flesh out my movie "OLPC yesterday, today and
the future" So if you are in the Bay Area and can grant me an interview
discussing where you see OLPC in five years, please let me know. I am
clearing my calendar this week and early next. I kind of see the future
coming together with something like Henry's project, a place to collaborate
with olpcers from around the globe. The interview would take a half an hour
max and I would travel to you.
Sameer, Henry can you spare a half an hour this week? I can buy either
coffee, tea or beer.
Please let me know,
