* Richard Smith (OLPC's electrical power expert) will discuss solar 
options for the XO starting 3:30PM sharp for those who arrive early, In 
* Tim Falconer of http://waveplace.org will share post-talk reflections 
on his own fascinating Nicaragua deployment experiences, for those who 
remain after the 4-5PM talk, eg:


Tiffany & Steve of the Digital Literacy Project (www.DigiLiteracy.org)
will be presenting DigiLit's recent [January 2010] XO deployment in
Managua, Nicaragua.  Independently from OLPC's larger efforts in the
region, seven members of the Harvard team set up a computer lab at
the Nicaraguan Deaf Association, adding deaf students to the One
Laptop per Child equation.  The team will talk about plans for
translating XO laptop tutorials into sign language, as well as
curriculum development.  Please join us to consider how the XO
can accommodate different styles of learning!
