IRC channel
Installfest. Bloomington, IUPUI, IUPUC (Columbus) are the most convenient
for me.
Edubuntu fest. Invite parents, children, teachers, others

I also work  with One Laptop Per Child and Sugar Labs on education
software and e-learning materials. I'm available for demos and talks.

Netbook computers cost less than printed textbooks, and Indiana allows
school corporations to buy computers from the textbook budget. There are
numerous projects to produce electronic textbook replacements under
Creative Commons or GPL licenses.

I'll see about getting this Webmail system to handle character sets
correctly. Unicode, anyone? Linux has just added the last of the modern
writing systems, Mongolian. OLPC XOs don't work in Mongolia when it gets
to 30 below, so we have to tell the kiddies to go inside. ^_^
