More Meeting Videos

Here’s a nice video of our February meeting produced by the students involved with Nortel’s LearnIT project. LearnIT has started a pageĀ about us on their learning resources web site.

And if you didn’t catch it on OLPC News, Wayan shot a sweet clip of 6-year-old meeting regular Marayd demonstrating XO Speak.

Just wanted to pass up some value priced USB keyboards for XO. I liked the flexible keyboard for portability, but it really requires a flat surface, so I think the mini is better. act fast for rebates.

I am finding my xo a pretty nifty little tool, and love its portability, efficiency, and versatility. If it has one Achilles’ heel it’s a keyboard sized for kids’ hands, so it’s fortunate that USB keyboards work fine.

Lugging a full-sized external keyboard, though, is inelegant. By chance I happened upon a Stowaway, a full-sized keyboard that folds down to the size of a PDA and weighs only half a pound. Would it connect to a USB port, I’d be done, but it was designed for use with PDAs at the turn of the millennium. Here is an image and specs: http://www.targus.com/US/drivers_manuals_archive.asp?SKU=PA840U#

So my question: is there a way to mate this wonderful little PDA accessory to my wonderful little laptop?
