Congrats! :) I kept on delaying my assault there... lazy me! :(

Do you have any contact with User:Adamascj? I wanted to contact him about those pages but didn't manage to elicit a response... holidays maybe? :) --Xavi 20:41, 13 February 2007 (EST)

follow up in User talk:Xavi#OLPCities
Totally agree on the redirects and the gumming up on the namespace. I was basically postponing it, afraid of messing up somebody's vision (especially after so much effort by User:Adamascj). But yes, the wiki needs a lot of work... again, a bit of a chicken myself to 'edit boldly' as the wiki-user-manual says...
Some approaches I tried with more or less success / consistency were
  • wiki-fication of terms (allowing for 'what links here' backtrack) and later decide what fits with what
  • homogeneous structure (particularly I tried with some languages, alphabets and countries)
  • the FAQ needs better organization and content (I doubt the reorganization into Ask OLPC ... about XXX by itself made a dent in the barrage of questions)
    • I verified, and the Ask OLPC a Question page has gone down to about 30 edits/month (similar to september 06, after a peak of 140+ edits/month during october, november and december... (same behavior as spam I think) so the peak was probably due to external publicity... I wonder what the next wave may be like!
Areas that need plenty of work (imho) is content and related academic stuff... I find it hard to determine either structure or usability of some content. Not to mention the multi-language issues. Needless to say that I'm all ears to give a hand! :) --Xavi 21:43, 13 February 2007 (EST)



I create an OlpcProject:Educational ideas page for Pedagogical ideas. Could you see it, please, and talk me what do you think about it ?

Thanks --Zyacat

test image

Since you made the Image:EToys_-_new_display.jpg image, I'm hoping I can get you to take a few pictures of a test image.

The results can be used to improve OLPC screen simulations, to accurately describe the OLPC screen limits, and perhaps to improve the OLPC screen. (I'm thinking a 5x5 loadable convolution matrix in place of the hard-wired swizzle function would be very useful.)
