We would like access to your project plan and knowledge base for localization and deployment. Given your experience was augmented with working closely with the software companies behind the application, we would like to know if localization is possible by third party. For example, if OneBillion or Kitkit must be involved in localization process, how do we get on their strategy planning.

Hi @daniel_miller I love all the points that were made during the xprize workshop. I would add to the conversation that I believe the story behind education also needs to change. Children in the US at least, have the idea in their head since they were young that they must learn to pursue a career or a certain field of expertise. But if you were able to promote a story that is surrounded by children naturally learning and pursuing fields that they did not believe were to far out of reach; I believe people contributions to society and their communities would improve. I believe a free learning environment always people to find a passion within themselves at a much higher rate then the traditional idea of education.

Would love your thought ??? & thank you for allowing me to be a part of the conversation
