We also have Steve Jacobs the RIT professor who ran with my suggestion to teach Open Source development. And last but not least, Fred Grose who'll be overseeing the RIT Co-ops this summer, Wiki Magician, and the guy who's been beyond helpful filling in our knowledge gaps concerning OLPC and Sugar Labs. Steve and Fred were also the driving force behind an OLPC Grass Roots group in Rochester. I just happened to come to the first meeting as a Fedora-OLPC SIG rep. The rest is kismet.
