And back in the States

Back in the States. On my last day in São Tomé, Voice of America came by to do a little special on our computer program. It should have broadcast yesterday over the radio waves though I never had a chance to listen in.

Although I'm back and taking a breather over the holidays, I'm still extremely energized to see what we can do to help these kids out. I'm thinking it might be impossible to gather 500 computers from one organization or company...that maybe asking five companies to each do a sort of "sponsorship" of 100 computers will be better.

Meeting with some OLPC people in Cambridge on the 30th. Hoping to share what I've got and get a little feedback then.

Paul will be in São Tomé soon. I hope his transition over there can be smooth and will keep posted how things go there. Also excited to hear from the teachers about how the program is going.

Peace and happy holidays to all.
