I visit two times the fishing village (the last time in 2011 if I
remember correctly ) and the OLPC laptops were still working at that
It would be nice to have some recent news.

I remember that I try several times during my stay in Vietnam from
2008 to 2012 to organize presentations, meetings about XO OLPC.
There is a lot of people on the olpc-vietnam mailing-list, but not
that much people willing to do some concrete actions.
One major problem was maybe the distance between Ha Noi and Ha Long bay.
