Meeting at McGraw-Hill; maps

OLPC went down to New York this morning to meet with a team from the McGraw-Hill Education division. They're working on a suite of activities for the XO, including a PDF reader for their materials (and others), a concentration-like game, and a reading activity. Everything's moving very quickly, and they're expecting to have a beta in the next month. Exciting!

Also exciting is the new wiki map built by the folks at We're envisioning a series of layers-- for children, developers, enthusiasts, etc. We're also working on an XO push-pin to make the map our own.
