OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) Project

Since there are a lot of computer savvy types here with linguistic skills I thought I'd point this out. The OLPC project (Wikipedia) is (unsurprisingly) in need of translators for their project. ">Here's some general information and how to get started. They seem to also have a list of target countries that they want to be able to deploy to in the local languages (if I understand correctly).

Sorry for the brevity, but there's so much more information there than I could possibly summarize, so go look at the link. Pass it on if you know someone who may be interested!
