Project description

Jamendo.com is currently the easiest way to create a free music bundle for the OLPC (http://blog.jamendo.com/index.php/2007/08/05/creative-commons-music-in-the-100-laptop-jamendo-partners-with-one-laptop-per-child/).

However, making a playlist requires a little bit of searching, planning, and drag-and-drop. Someone should make a clean help page about the whole process, keep the existing community interested in the project, and make new communities aware of this opportunity.

The intern should also help selecting the playlists and keeping an eye on their smooth transfer to OLPC.


hafhp.org -although the date has expired for the project, i'm very keen to help with this project how i can.[Hungry Artists Feed Hungry People]

Some info about how the hafhp project started.

In the wake of the huge disaster in Pakistan, I started to notice inequalities in charity collection. Hurricane Katrina in the US was a major disaster; however, what about Pakistan? Seventy thousand people died in Pakistan, and 1300 people died in the Mississippi. These events happened around the same time, yet far more media coverage went to one rather than the other. This resulted in more charity dollars going to Katrina. Artists and the public face such inequalities everyday. It seems that the artists who are getting the exposure in the fight against poverty are artists that are known and very much a part of the media machine. What should we think of this, and how do we change it? hafhp is a collaborative effort that potentially gives exposure to unknown art, feeds people, and creates awareness. Perhaps hafhp is part of the solution for the artist in times of inequality and environmental devastation. This year i went to the isummit in dubrovnik and lean't a lot about

I would like to encourage artists to give tracks of music up to the OLPC project. This year i took the project to the summit in Dubrovnik. view this link for details.[1]
