Hi everyone,

We're two days away from the start of Squeakfest USA (http://squeakfest.org 
), which is being held at the UCLA Faculty Center from Monday, August  
10th to Wednesday, August 12th.  We're excited by the presentations  
we've got lined up, including a keynote by Alan Kay.  Presenters will  
discuss how they're using Squeak Etoys and OLPC XOs in places like  
Nepal, South Korea, Uruguay, Haiti, Nicaragua, the United States, and  

We've still got room in our children's workshop, which runs from noon  
to two each of the three days.  Kids aged 8 to 12 will use Etoys on  
provided XOs, learning to create animations and stories, just like in  
the Waveplace pilots.  Best of all, if you bring a child, we'll waive  
your registration fee, which is otherwise $125 for the conference.

Take care,
