On Friday, I’m heading to Ethiopia to work with the local OLPC team for a few weeks. I’ll be educating them on technical matters, encouraging and equipping them to become further involved with project development, and I’ll assist with the deployment of 5000 XO laptops to schoolchildren. These laptops were donated through last year’s Give One Get One US/Canada promotion. I also plan to visit the OLPC efforts in Rwanda.
I’ll be back in the US in mid-October and will return to the UK soon after.
