This is a fantastic idea. A publication with step by step activity
creation instructions and a liveCD with the barebones activities
(templates?) referenced in the publication would provide a distinct
starting point for developers interested in our project, even those
who don't have an XO yet.
I'd be more than willing to help with pyGame/OLPCGames
instructions/templates--I've been working through this sort of
activity creation process all summer.
