Would definitely be interested in a talk about the OLPC and Sugar. BTW has anyone given any thought about the possibility of getting local manufacturing involved? Surely OLPC doesn't stand for One Laptop Per Cent (of the Children of School-going Age =3%)

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.
