Today was Heroes Day, so most schools were closed. Luckily, we were still able to meet with Daniel Bwanika, the Dean of Development at Kampala. He prepared a beautiful lunch and we strategized how to begin the process. We narrowed our focus to one area from which many of his teachers come for training. These teachers would be good advocates for implementing the XO's in their schools. We made a list for each of us to accomplish and will communicate by email. I gave him two XO's: one for his computer science students and one for his teaching students. All had previously received LiveCD yesterday. Quite satisfying, food and thought.

Later, I met with Isaac from Silver Shadows Technology. He had previously contacted OLPC and wanted to become involved. He is already in teacher training and would like to extend his services to the XO project. I demonstrated the XO and gave him LiveCD to boot. The logistics need further refinement so we plan to meet again on Sunday when I return from Fort Portal Kasiisi Project and a safari. We do have fun too!
