Hi all,

I'm a newbie on Squeak and I have been using only eToys and BotsInc 
environment for teaching introductory courses on Informatics. But I 
think that would be nice a project which combines content creation for 
the OLPC image of Squeak with the creation/adaptation of tools for 
making that content more easy for authoring and localization to multiple 
languages. This would be a project not centered on code but is going 
from content to code and from software to "humanware" (part of the 
project is using the OLPC image to create content with children of 
schools). Do you think that there is a place for such proposal in SOC 
(Google is a sponsor of OLPC project). ¿Some one would be willing to 
mentor it?
