Archive announced today that [0]all 1.6 million books scanned and
digitized by the Archive will be available for reading on XO laptops
built by the Cambridge, MA-based One Laptop Per Child Foundation. The
announcement came during a session on electronic books and electronic
publishing at the [1]Boston Book Festival. Kahle said the Archive has
been collaborating with OLPC for a year to format the e-books for display
on the XO laptops, some 750,000 of which are in use by children in
developing countries."

Off to Neverland!

We are finally on our last leg to St Kitts! We flew to Chicago, then Miami, slept over and are now officially making use of our passports. I am so happy to have my whole family together, happy, and comfortable. We didn't have any of our stuff, to get ready, but we actually had time for breakfast, so that was awesome. Anyway, better go! I'll send pictures soon, possibly.
