Spreading the Word!!

1. Check us out on the OLPC Blog!!
2. Check us out (soon) in the NH Union Leader!!
3. Check us out with the Prime Minister of São Tomé, whose audience we have next week as we try to take this program one step closer to him!

I thought we'd hit up the PM to see (1) if the STP government DOES have any money on hand to work this program (for sustainability purposes, it's not the best idea to have the USA constantly sending in funds) and (2) to see if they can work the shipment of these computers once we have them because that's going to be a really tricky issue. Really, just having the PM on our side at all is a great idea, so thanks to a freelance journalist I met who does work in STP and is going to be talking to the PM next week, we now have a great audience for the program!

  1. Hi, maybe the Portuguese government would be interested in funding? Or maybe with Magalhaes machines running Sugar?
