Jeffrey:

This really is a good cause.  It is staffed primarily by volunteers and
you will not regret waiting.  There is so much good that can be done
with this and technical people, such as yourself, are needed to make
this a go.

The engineering design that went into the hardware and software for this
is really utterly amazing.  They came in at twice the money they wanted
to, but it is still remarkable.  It is very tiny, the keyboard is
intended for a child's hands, but my USB keyboard and mouse work just
fine.  Tom and I will be doing mesh networking experiments next week.

With some patience and some effort,  we can deliver some very neat
things to OLPC and help them help the disadvantaged of the world connect
to the rest of the world.


Happy Holidays,
