You may talk to me here, but check my status to see whether I'm around. See my userpage for other ways to contact me if you need something in a hurry (email is best for anything not urgent). Sj


Hey- Thanks for your help, it's refreshing to have some collaboration.

I'd like to talk to you more about the include tags you mentioned before. Those could prove to be quite useful.

Also, I like what you've done with the sidebar. Portions of it may or may not be temporary depending on how we decide to set up the front page. Walter and I had discussed setting it up like the main page of I really like the organization going on there. Everything is right at your fingertips, and it's still very navigable. I had a different approach than what they had though (I think)- My idea is to modularize the page into elements (or blocks, or cells, or whatever you want to call them). Say we categorize the entire wiki into a dozen super categories. Each category would have it's own template (or page, or whatever). That way the main page can be just an index of what blocks are included instead of a bunch of ugly html. Am I discovering something that's already in use? Is this a good/bad/superlative idea? Let me know what you think. Thanks! --Aburton 18:39, 26 June 2006 (EDT)


I received your comments. Thanks. OLPCities is an open project. Everybody (some anonymous...) can help, create content etc. etc. We hope that, in the future, we can use the MIT(?) OLPC server (I believe that there are one available) to upload all the material. Our server can be not good enought if we have a big trafic (we are optimist...). --Americo , 19 September 2006

refactoring love

content page ideas on my user page. Phoebe 01:22, 12 October 2006 (EDT)

A question

Is there a preliminary list of new features I can review somewhere? From my point of view, getting a better idea of the Journal, and more generally: how content will be deployed. For example can our software tie into the depolyment mechanism. So content that has been downloaded and is displayed in our software can reference other content that the student hasn't downloaded yet. --Scott C.

How would you want to reference software on the network that hasn't yet been downloaded? There will be visibility of content on the mesh and server, at least via an index with basic metadata about the files. Sj talk 19:48, 10 December 2006 (EST)


Local copies of text with push updates, changes when others change. Personal wikis with small groups/clusters. Synch of pages across wikis. Diffs pushed to email servers, pulled down to rev control.

Songbird, etc for exposing, sharing music. Post-v6 IP sharing. Version and data problems... doing away with net file systems.



I am an astronomy graduate student and educator at Portugal. I'd like very much to contribute to the OLPC project with my knowledge in communicating astronomy. I give various lectures, courses, workshops and so forth.

Hoping to hear from you.

Hello José! Welcome to our wiki. Please create an account here and come back soon. I would love to have you contribute to our project. Perhaps you can help start a page on Astronomy and how to teach it to children from scratch. Sj talk 22:49, 25 January 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 ?

Software projects

Are my latest editions on Software projects in line with what you had in mind?

Also, what about all the other stuff at ? I'm retiscent to include some projects (ie: linux-mm-cc and such) given their 'low-level' nature.--Xavi 13:05, 19 February 2007 (EST)


can Summer_of_Code be updated to include WiXi as candidate? sooner action will encourage better student proposals..

(last year twexter was included as candidate for SOC 2006, but on the very last day.. thus student proposals were weak.. this year proposals could be stronger if twexter/WiXi could be included sooner.. I met with Alexander Gelbukh yesterday, he's eager to mentor and already listed as a Google mentor in Mexico.. thanks:) Duke 13:12, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Library strings

I extracted the 'visible' strings from the library... put them in [[User:Xavi/Library strings#Table format]] and [[User:Xavi/Library strings#PO format]] (reviewed Localization/Library strings)... take your pick! :) --Xavi 21:12, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Through with the biology section, actually it's more botanical & biomes—of which I thought I knew enough... did the best I could, should be reviewed. Again, they are in table and PO format :) --Xavi 03:51, 29 March 2007 (EDT)


Hi, Xavi

please let me know how to add Korean translation to The guideline says use PO file, but how to write it, PO file for Korean?




They sure look ugly... I just followed Walter's naming convention... Personally I would've gone the sub-pages road... but that just swaps / for -... --Xavi 01:01, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

Update the translated content on the

Hi, Sj

Thanks for making a user page for me. BTW, I've made the final review of the translations for zh-CN version of the web with some corrections. Could you make them online? I think that it is controlled by the olpc team member. The translation works for korean and portuguese have the same problems. All needs full update. Thanks! -- user:ScottZ 05:05, 07 April 2007 (EDT)

Obsolete Template

We sure could use a "obsolete" template to mark some of the more out of date pages, such as
