Please accept my apologies about Sugar Lab's ability to help you.
Your contributions, through spreading the word, are invaluable.
Everyone as SL is currently paying their own way; which the exception
of the GOSC students:) (Go Jamison, Go)
The apparent emphases on the East Cost and Boston is due solely to the
fact that Caroline and Walter happen to live there. (As a brief,
aside we met Caroline at a conference in Indiana. Location is not
everything.) So, transportation is cheap; Bicycle or Prius depending
on the person and distance. If things work out well for Caroline and
Walter, the lessons they learning doing Sugar deployments, can be
applied to the rest of the world.
