Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND

Google RISE Awards says “no” to us, yes to other great projects.


Google RISE Awards.

No RISE award for Fargo XO this year, but we will try again next year.  If the OLPC  and Sugar communities worked together on a project, that might show more impact and clout, although $30,000 wouldn’t go very far, either.  Comment below if you are interested in exploring this possibility.

    Bob, did you notice that Google Rise funds projects in Sub Saharan Africa? One Kenyan project was funded. Not too soon to start brainstorming and drafting how OLPC in Kibwezi could apply. What are your needs? Where would funding make the greatest impact?
