Hi Sean,

Prof. Rich Rice from Texas Tech University did some revisions on their XO/Sugar
video from Science Spectrum in Lubbock, TX and it is now ready to go on the
Daily Motion site. (See below). 


I have also sent Prof. Rice and 13 of his colleagues in the Computers and Writing Community
"Sugar on a Stick". 

Three of the colleagues are on the Committee on Computers in Composition and Communication (March 2012)

Pay attention to Point 2]... Include in these activities attention to open source and community
source projects 
and software, calling attention to best practices, when
possible, and providing guidelines on issues and strategies...  

Eyman, Assistant Professor of English, George Mason University, and
Senior Editor of Kairos: Rhetoric, Technology, Pedagogy

Robert “Bob”
Whipple, Associate Professor of English and A.F. Jacobson Endowed
Chair in Communication, Creighton University

Tammy S. Conard-Salvo Associate Director, Writing Lab Purdue University

Many of these professors are on Summer Break so the feedback from them on "Sugar on a Stick" will probably 
trickle in over the next month and a half and should pick up in the later part of August as their perspective 
Universities go back into session.

I will be looking to engage these Professors along with their students in projects that will embed the writing
process and command of language skills into the Sugar Learning Platform. In the University World this would
be described as Writing Across the Curriculum, in the world of Sugar-Writing Across the Activities is something
we should strive for.

Any and All ideas on how we might accomplish this would be appreciated.

> John,
> I re-edited to shorten the video some and to put in music that is not copyrighted. If you like, you could put up the file http://richrice.com/5365/iplay-short.mov on dailymotion/sugarlabs. The video would now be able to fall under CC. Playing with sugar sticks now.
