My name is Joshua Wynn a thesis student at NYU that is in the process of
doing research that involves OLPC effort to provide efficient network
connectivity. I became fascinated with this non profit Organization back in
2005 after reading a series of news articles on this great initiative. I
now have the opportunity to conduct a thesis level study on OLPC. My focus
has been narrowed to the network connectivity within classrooms. I would
like to focus how children will receive a stable connection with the laptops
in the classrooms. I was looking into two countries both Peru and Uruguay.
I am looking to measure the duration of connectivity, how long it takes for
a laptop to stay connected, and how many laptops can simultaneously connect
at a time within a classroom.
I having been searching for information on deployments in the various
developing nations that OLPC has worked with. I would like to ask you if is
possible that I can pointed in the right direction of data and contacts
pertaining to the network and server connectivity deployment aspect. I am
trying to collect as much data as I can on success and failure rates, the
causes and effects, and what other variables there may be within the
I look forward to adding to the body of knowledge with data I hope to
analyze and being able to contribute (via wiki) where possible.
Any help you can provide would be most appreciative.
Thank you very much,
