On Feb 1 Adam sent the following update:

1) Hi and a Warm Welcome to the ~20 new people who signed up for OLPC-HAITI yesterday and today!  Get oriented around our volunteer community’s intense hour-by-hour progress/planning happening “live” here: http://newhaitiproject.ning.com/group/onelaptopperchildwaveplaceproject 

(Creole fluency is *not* required, , all welcome to register and then help!)

2) Hans: might a draft/scan of your Creole XO coloring book be possible tomorrow?

3) I just uploaded Educa Vision, Inc’s 164 book(lets) catalog of Creole materials they’ve offered Geradline/us (listeducaforzephirin.xls) to the BOOKS WE WANT section here: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Haitian_Creole_Translation_for_Education

4) Congrats to Carmina whose http://RaiseUpHaiti.com blog now appears on the official OLPC community blog aggregator: http://planet.laptop.org Even if her Speaking-From-The-Haitian-Heart title (LAPTOPS?!?) was accidentally chopped by our server’s “planet” software 😉

5) Please all keep our Garden Growing here (click EDIT just below) supporting those doing the much harder work translating thru the night!! http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Haitian_Creole_Translation_for_Education

Haiti’s Educ Infrastructure is now on the front pages:
