Today FLISOL (http://peru.flisol.net/) holds its third meeting to
coordinate their huge nation wide installfest on a saturday in april.
I'm going with the ubuntu - peru crowd, with the intention of making a
bridge to contact between our international volunteers from OLPC
foundation and the local linux and free software activists.
I hope we can achieve to make this an open and transparent process and
for this the involvement of the independent community is very important
(currently there is officially and arbitrarily only one university
involved in the deployment - namely a private one owned by the minister
of education himself).
The idea is basically get a grassroots effort started, that is
independent and can vouch for the transparency and report on the
process, especially as this will document for other deployment conditions.
Also I've been informed "BiNaRi0" will be broadcasting live from Flisol
meeting at #flisol2008-pe , at FreeNode.
Isnt that cool?
I'll report what goes on at the meeting tonight. Tomorrow I meet the
team at the ministerio.
