A handful of idealistic Frenchies built a stronger
implementation/contributors/fundraising volunteer community than possibly
all other countries, but how?  Supporting an actual island village in
Madagascar with solar-powered inter-island Wifi?  What on earth's behind
this FranXOfrique FranXOphonie, that every other country might learn from
s'il vous plait?

This coming Thursday watch a live interview to learn the answers from the
OLPC guys (and quite a number of OLPC girls/women/kids, eureka) who made it
happen over the past half-decade -- in Madagascar and far beyond:

   CORRECTION: Thursday August 2nd, 11AM NYC Time

Guerry and (XS/hardware hacker) Xavier Carcelle, if not others -- as they
tell this powerful story live:
