Open Content Portal

  • website
  • focused on children (and other users)
  • allows both upload/download

Find and Publish Mechanism

  • Software on device enables find and publish
  • Develop GTK-based license chooser that hooks into desktop as control panel
    • Idea is for this to be skinned with sugar and put in so that each user on a system might select the default license
  • Develop KDE-based license chooser
  • Allows for proper licensing (although, how does one explain this to kids?)

Pre-existing Content

  • Get all content on the device licensed with CC licenses
  • Get all documentation and printed matter CC licensed


  • Teaching materials about relevant issues, although the relevance and complexity to users of OLPC makes this debatable
