Regarding content, the advantage of the local "homepage" in the XO-1 browser
as shipped from OLPC is that content is there in an understandable way even
if the network doesn't work/isn't available. As compared with finding
content in the journal, it is easier to tell what and why the content might
be interesting. It really seems wrong to me to put all eggs in the journal
basket for new users. I know that the journal is much loved by the sugar
afficianados, but it actually is pretty opaque to a new user.
Regarding infoslicer, I think so much of sugar activities is math and
science oriented, it is great to see a way that a teacher might create
simplified content for kids to read. I hope, btw, that Infoslicer is
enhanced to, for example, take as input an epub book, allowing someone to
easily work on and produce a simplified version. There is a dearth of
open content suitable for emergent readers.
