Hi Urs


Thanks for the invitation. Could you (or your co-president) share some information on how you want to continue with OLPC CH.


As far as I remember the general consensus was last year that the dissolution of OLPC was proposed but rejected because you co-presidents wanted to re-inject life into it.


As far as my duty as autitor is concerned I am unwilling to serve for another year (or more) as auditor unless there is considerable more life in OLPC.


Best regards

Hi Niklaus,

It is true that we discussed the matter of shutting down the association last year. Since there were some activities in planning at the EPFL in Lausanne, I pleaded to wait another year. Michael Lew as part of the EPFL showed his willingness to take over the chairmanship. To guarantee continuity I have declared my readiness to share chairmanship with Michael as co-presidents for the year.

From my behalf it was and is clear that I won't have much time for OLPC.ch. I know that Michael has some ideas, but until now I haven't seen something concrete. Therefore my proposition is, that we give Michael another year if he wants to continue and is able to present his plans in some details. Otherwise, we in fact should discuss the concrete shut down of the association.

Hi all,

Just a short reminder and change note. Coming Thursday our annual
meeting will take place at Fabrikstrasse 8 in Berne (attention: new
address), which is very convenient if you travel by train. We will meet
in front of the Caffetteria on the ground floor and,depending on the
number of people, will look for a suitable room. If you think you could
be late, please send me an email with your mobile number and I will call
you as soon as we know the precise location.
