“All, I was so lucky that my travels brought me coincidentally to San Francisco for the conference.  It was a great joy to see all that has been done by all of you with the laptops and you have inspired me to head back to Asia and keep improving both the cost and performance of the hardware & to help highlight to OLPC where a little help for some of your projects could go a very long way.

For me it was the first time to meet so many of you whom I have heard about for many years. 

Thank you so much for putting such a warm, friendly, and open conference and for all the work you are doing for the world’s children”.

“Got home to Washington DC late last night where I stop for a few days before heading back to Mumbai and on to Mangalore!

Thank you Sameer for putting together such a great Community Without Borders event!

It was so worth it coming all the way from India.

Please thank Mira for the Volunteer T shirts that she painted and her delightful conversation.

Very special thanks to The Kleider Clan for opening their home to us and the wonderful dinner and all the food and drink though the 3 days. 

Carol Ruth Silver ..Thank you for braving the SF Fog and dealing with the flat tyre so late at night…Thanks for the cozy bed at your home and the early morning hot tea and ride to the airport I feel indebted. 

Sameer can we still update the participant lists with pictures so that we have the name and faces right”.

Thank you again for inviting me to the community summit in SF… I found it both incredibly inspiring and informative, and I am very glad I managed to meet so many OLPCers face to face”.
