Hi everyone,

since we are expecting a large amount of press coverage starting
Monday (Sean has the details), I wanted to renew the below request for
authentic Sugar images. We are looking for any of the following images
for the static website:

(1) screenshots of Sugar showing how children are using specific
activities (see for example the attached Chat activity)

(2) images of Sugar installed on platforms other than the XO (Mike Lee
has offered to shoot a few of these, but if you know of any other
images please let me know)

(3) photos of children using Sugar on their laptops/computers in the
classroom/computer lab.

Thanks so much--please send any images you have to my address before Monday!

Also compelling would be testimonials/quotes by both children and
educators. If you have access to any such information, please send it
my way as well.
