OLPC laid off most of their software staff yesterday -- 50% of the staff overall, but the cuts were deepest in software. That means, as of Friday, I am available to work -- for you!
I am hearing rumors that there might be a source of seed funding for continued development of Sugar, the educational software stack shipping on all OLPC XOs. If so, I'd love to be able to continue the work that's consumed me for the past 18 months. Fingers crossed.
