While Walter Bender spends the most recent OLPC Current Events thanking all the talented developers working night and day on the Children's Machine XO, Jon, David, and I would like the thank the newest contributors to One Laptop Per Child News:
- Tom (tom at olpcnews dot com) works as a studio manager for an international broadcasting organisation in the UK, with journalists and broadcasters from all over the world. He is interested in the OLPC project as born from his preoccupation with low-cost home computers in his own childhood.
He is a regular contributor to the OLPC wiki, but has so far not managed to get his hands on a real laptop, instead having to rely on simulators to see how the project is progressing.
- shankar at olpcnews dot com) is President, One Laptop Per Child Nepal. Its goal is to create an environment for OLPC, take necessary steps to ensure every child in Nepal get the laptops and develop the Local Activities for OLPC laptops that could revolutionize how we educate the children.
OLPC Nepal wants to provide every children of Nepal with new opportunities to explore, experiment, and express themselves, and unlike Tom, already has its own B1 Test units.
Best of all, OLPC News has you, our vibrant readership which is stimulating the conversation around the Children's Machine XO. Thank you for making this site a lively discussion of all things OLPC.
