In the past I have written to a few people to see if people are interested in coming together to discuss OLPC deployments in Asia. The first person I wrote to was Elaine Negroponte, Director of Cambodia PRIDE after reading her heart2heart reply to a donation from an individual in Australia. Her immediate reply to a possible meetup was very encouraging:
"I think not only that it is possible to get
together in the Fall but it is a wonderful idea as well. Maybe we can
entice some of people involved in other projects to join. I can think of
some people in Thailand who may be interested as a start"
For those who are new to OLPC, click on the web-page below. We are looking forward to hearing their stories that can guide future deployments - years instead of days :-)
