Project Outreach

Some other things that just happened this week:

  • A volunteer at the Las Piedras school asked me to write to her son, who's studying programming in college. On his blog, he posts great resources for the Magallanes Classmate PCs. Argentina, are you seeing this? I told him to check out Hacker News Spanish.

  • I started a conversation with WorldReader about hacking eReaders. Then I heard interesting rumors about the next generation of eReaders, so I've put it on the back burner. If I work in Seattle this fall with super secret company then I could follow up.

  • I asked Garage48 if their traveling hackathon was going to visit Uganda. Now they're making plans with our OLPC contacts at Kampala University. Hoping there will be education apps and future Ugandan entrepreneurs at this event!

  • I was selected for a Code for America 2012 fellowship, so I'll being making plenty of maps and apps for cities next year.
