Wow, awesome!

We have a very active Linux community in Cape Town, with a good number
of people involved in community volunteer programs from time to time.
We'll definitely get people involved.

I'm a developer with Collabora, working on the Sugar collaboration
stack using Telepathy and Jabber - so OLPC is my day job and I'll be
available to assist with technical issues with the deployment. (I'm in
Cape Town...)

Whitney Hunter-Thomson is a volunteer who has come to Soweto to help
set up a similar 100 laptop deployment at Kliptown Youth Project. I'm
sure she and her team will introduce themselves on the list and let us
know how that is going.
