I had the privilege and the fun of being a guest on one of my long time buddies weekly podcasts. The first part is pretty much tech new, if your not into that you can skip halfway through to catch the interview about life down here and how tech works, we also talked about the $100 One Child One Laptop (OCOL) project. I would admit that my comments pertained more to Canaries then Castries or Viewfort and Saint Lucia now has online banking.
Go here to listen to the podcast.
Lee Klejnot joins us from St. Lucia in the Caribbean. He is there with the Peace Corps on a 2 year tour. We discuss how tech is relevant in a small fishing village. Topics include: the OLPC, island DSL, and how urgent it is to fill the digital divide.

I had a great time doing it, it was fun and I appreciate Joe and Ryan inviting me on, if you get a chance to be on podcast go for it. Keep up the good work Joe and Ryan.
