Yeah, the 780/thin client wasn't ready for prime time but I'm pleased to see the concepts are still kicking around and gaining ground with newer and more robust implementations (OLPC, EEE PC, etc), not to mention the fact that Redmond is -for now-, conspicuously absent (nice try though...) from these lighter weight, solid state platforms. That and coming surge of online access to productivity software makes this an exciting time to be involved. We'll see how all that plays out sooner than later I suspect.

Lower TCO and higher ROI for families/students is the appeal these solutions have for me. I still feel 1 to 1full on laptop programs are prohibitively expensive for the majority.

I do hope to attend Lausanne again Jim, but we'll have to see how it stacks up with the summer workload. TSS is a year round non profit with Residential Ed. groups all summer and along with supporting the work of TSS Wildlife Expeditions and the Conservation Research Center, I may have to take a break next year. Reminds me to get Stuart my new info soon.

London seems to suit you and I'm glad to hear that's the case. You both got lucky methinks...

Hi Jim,

Good to see you too, my friend. We are enjoying Wyoming very much. Takes a bit of getting used to (like you wouldn't know anything bout that...LOL). I feel I'm already making a great deal of difference here at TSS and that is making the transition somewhat easier. Excellent work going on here. Still interested in hearing about how yours is going...

I saw your interest in the OLPC thread/project and recall our discussion some 5 years ago about getting to this point and beyond. I will follow that one (and your take on it) with great interest.

Happy holidays to you and yours Jim!

haha, I think we're on the same wavelength on the term "meatspace"

Jim (and Demetri), an NYC dinner sounds like a wonderful idea. Would be great to connect to you all in, *gasp*, face to face conversation. I'm happy to try and help facilitate, being a local and all...

I like your sailboat, and your sailing area.

The one in the picture above is a Sigma 38 I sailed on the Solent with a sailing group. It competed in the Fastnet race this year (but needed new standing rigging afterwards). I regret not sailing when we lived in Maryland-- but I did take a Rainbow 24 out on the Chesapeake during a visit to the AIMS retreat a couple of years ago.

Yes, its a Sea Sprite 23. The photo was taken while my brother-in-law and I were attempting the Governor's Cup Race, an overnight race from Annapolis to St. Mary's College (ran out of wind in the morning). How about your photo?

Thanks, Demetri

You can find the ICT listserv for ECIS (European Council of Independent Schools) at

Cycling in London is fun, but today we just walked in Hampstead Heath and faced some of the craziness at Piccadilly Circus as my daughter had a party to attend there. We caught a glimpse of Michael Caine and Jude Law as they did the red carpet thing for opening of Sleuth at the Odeon West End.

Hey Jim,
Is there a list-serv or site for overseas schools? I'd like to pursue connecting to more international schools. Like Fred, I've also appreciated your blog and hearing about your experiences biking the streets of London :)

Hey Jim,

Great to see you here! Hope all is going well over in London. Are you using that cool bike to commute? I very much continue to enjoy your blog postings!

Warm regards,
