r = reawakening (message for me)

Participants to basecamp never had identical Tee-shirt. I was given this "r' message from a fellow basecamper. We had to design one for each other :-).  Maybe this is symbolic for the next journey ahead.

Walk on!

Basecamp Updates: The action on 14 Nov

Pictures of the trip to a future deployment site visit in Malaysia yesterday. Let us be enlightened with the maturing durian. It will fall to the ground when ripe to be eaten by wild boars and human alike! More photos from Adam:

Basecamp@Malacca start tomorrow with various teams and people making their way to the venue today/tonight.

The Journey begins

Some of us are in the air already. Will be boarding soon and will be meeting some of the support gang/triads in KL later today.

My XO-4 touch is working well on this first  journey with me. Device of desire and choice.

OLPC & olpc status: A football anology

   olpc 2.0 :-) if this is the way it ends on Nov 18, 2013

2 Weeks to basecamp@malacca + greetings

Exactly two weeks from today "olpc basecamp 2.0: the next journey" will kick-off in Malacca, Malaysia. Volunteeers new and old will assemble in the heart of historical Malacca (Melaka), a place where the mix of various cultures east and west is very visible. Our hope is to bring attention to the need that real action is needed for change to educate the millions of children.    

What can be accomplished will be dependent on participants themselves to self-organise for action. 

May the light be with you as the world celebrate:
