Hi Morgan

I hope you're well. I see that there is, all of a sudden, quite a bit of
interest in OLPC from all over the place. Good thing! I've had a request to
meet with someone at UCT too. I'd like to know if you would be keen to meet
with a few of these people together so that we can maximise our efforts? If
so, we could just send each other meeting requests and co ordinate diaries.
I think it would be good for us to meet up anyway? Please let me know your

Kind regards,

Sounds like we should have a get together some time with interested
people to discuss these issues... and I'm considering giving a talk at
UCT on OLPC and Sugar. I had the CS dept in mind but with the right
contacts we could make it broader in focus.

In the mean time, http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Deployment_Guide is
probably a good start to give you an idea of what is involved.
