Sounds good. I'm meeting with Simon Sizwe Mason at UCT on Friday morning. He
is the director of a project called Inkanyezi and is very interested in
OLPC. I will be taking along the XO that I have to show him. Would you be
interested in coming along? If so, we could always sit together for a while
afterwards and catch up?
Let me know.

Kind regards,

Sounds good. I arranged two XOs for LEAP Science and Maths School
(http://www.leapschool.org.za/) as the principal, John Gilmore, is an
ex-teacher of mine. He's away raising funds in the USA at the moment
(maybe even for XOs). I haven't actually met with him yet but I think
it would be a good opportunity for us to chat to him as LEAP's focus
is relevant to OLPC's mission.

I'll let you know when he's back and we can set up a time.
