XO design works!

Recently on one of our weekly Wednesday OLPC Austria meetings, little Said (the name of the boy) was here and he was playing around with the XO-1 laptop.

Later he went home and drew a picture of the laptop. We were all astonished how well he remembered the details and the functionality of the laptop! This gave me a very good feeling how well the actual XO will work in the hands of kids.

I must note that it is really a BIG joy to work together with so many smart people all with different backgrounds.

presenting the XO in Vienna

I presented the XO at the local linux weeks in Vienna on Sat, 2nd of June.
I hope to get some developers to join in some python coding sessions. The local media reported about it.

My slides are here.

One very nice experience was when one of our younger colleagues was explaining the laptop to grown ups.

On 2007/06/03 ORF1, the main Austrian TV station, will report on the XOs during prime time.
Here you can find an excerpt from the report which was broadcasted
