Thank Iti,

Can you say a little more about your background and your specific 
interests in OLPC?

Don't hesitate to reply to me privately if you prefer, and/or send your 
CV/resume (or similar) to volunteer at laptop.org, if you wish to consider 
volunteering with OLPC's global community hopefully -- and/or attend 
Sept 18's community BBQ.

Thanks again!
