Hi David --

I think it would be a good thing to have Brian's version of LOGO on the XO (and Sugar), and Brian is indeed a very good guy.

Subject: [IAEP] Sugar Labs, LOGO and Brian Harvey

What is the status of LOGO for sugar?  Is it a high priority item? 

As much as LOGO I would like to bring Brian Harvey, the original author
of BL, into the project.

He has a wealth of personal experience teaching people how to program,
he has a strong interest in LOGO, and is a good guy.

Brian's page is at http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~bh/ .

ucbLOGO's page is at  http://sourceforge.net/projects/ucblogo/ .

If Sugarizing logo is a priority we could do much worse then point new
contributors to Brian's group to get their feet wet before diving into

I know neither the value of bringing LOGO into OLPC nor the cost of
Sugarizing it to make a valid cost benefit analysis.  If some one could
do that analysis and it seems like a good idea it will try to get the
collaboration started.

In my role as 'wiki watcher' I see quite a few people register, ask how
they can help, and disappear when no one responds.
