Thanks for sharing. Yang and I were trying to find more information to share with people about TPHCM OLPC, but alas could not.
I definitely plan on attending FOSSAsia in November and would love to meet you Mario and anyone else who will be there on the list.
As you can, the talk isn't too long and I'd be more than happy to do this kind of introductory presentation, but would like to have someone else to also do some of the talk for the more tech-specs-aspects of the XO.
Maybe we can plan an informal meet-up for the OLPC-sters during FOSS Asia?

Dear Yang Nguyen,
this is a fantastic outcome! I am very happy to see the OLPC project move on.
Your question about OLPC Saigon - Marina worked on the project here a
few months ago and blogged about it on http://saigonolpc.wordpress.com
. Just go back to some older entries.
On Nov. 12-14 we will have FOSSASIA in Ho Chi Minh City. It would be
great to welcome volunteers who are interested in OLPC Vietnam or
even someone who can give a presentation like you did. We will have
two OLPCs available at the event.
Please get in touch, if you will attend.
All the best,

Dear all OLPC Vietnam members,
I'm so glad to announce to you all that OLPC Vietnam presentation and
at SFD were totally a success. Our presentation was conducted by Lilly
and me, in both Vietnamese and English. It was really clear and simple, it
emphasized the educational purposes of OLPC with brief introduction about
technical stuff (XO operating system, Sugar, and Vietnam Sugar Developers
Team). There was a question about OLPC Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh city and we
no information about OLPC activities in Ho Chi Minh. Please find OLPC
presentation in the attachment below. The workshop in the afternoon was
great. We had 3 XOs and a lot of people tried it. They also asked a lot of
questions about XO in specific, and about OLPC in general. Some of them
really interested in the project. Especially, Mr. Phan Trung Nghia from
HanoiLUG was willing to help us on translating materials for OLPC Vietnam.
The demo of Magic Words, a software which is developing by Vietnam Sugar
Developers Team, was gathered a lot of interest as well. Here are some of
pictures: , , , , .
Thank you all for helping us to have such a wonderful day as OLPC Vietnam
representatives. Thanks, Nancie, for your materials and wonderful pictures
from VVV as well as the your XO which Lilly brought. Thanks, Lilly, for
taking your time doing the presentation, wonderfully having conducted it in
English, and be with OLPC Vietnam the whole time. Thanks, Nguyet for having
lent me the 2 XOs and your great pictures. Thank you all.
Oh, I almost forget, please find OLPC Vietnam backdrop in the attachment.
P.S. Files too large, I have to upload them separately. Please find
them on our group's site.
