A handful of idealistic Frenchies built a stronger
implementation/contributors/fundraising volunteer community than possibly
all other countries, but how?  Supporting an actual island village in
Madagascar with solar-powered inter-island Wifi?  What on earth's behind
this FranXOfrique FranXOphonie, that every other country might learn from
s'il vous plait?

This coming Thursday watch a live interview to learn the answers from the
OLPC guys (and quite a number of OLPC girls/women/kids, eureka) who made it
happen over the past half-decade -- in Madagascar and far beyond:

   Thursday August 1st, 11AM NYC Time

Tune in here to hear guest speakers (Wikipedia governance alum) Bastien
Guerry and (XS/hardware hacker) Xavier Carcelle, if not others, as they
tell this powerful story live:


Keep the learning real by reading their blog in advance @
http://olpc-france.org/blog (en Français!) and sending your live interview
questions (in any language) for http://olpc-france.org to:

And until Thursday, our colorful preview poster is here, with special
thanks to Laura de Reynal's Madagascar photography:
