1. We need to finalize our application to Google Summer of Code by the end of next week. Iâ€™ve put a rough draft of our application in the wiki (SeeÂ Summer_of_Code/2013/Application). Most important is to finalize our list of project ideas and mentors. Please add your ideas to the wiki toÂ Summer_of_Code/2013.
2. Martin Abente (with a little help from his friends) has gotten the beginnings of aÂ Twitter Web ServiceÂ working from the Sugar Journal. Simply invoke the Copy-To Twitter menu item, and your Journal entry is sent as a tweet. There is some work to be done in registering the service per user and some housekeeping regarding pulling replies into the comments field of the Journal, but it is already in pretty decent shape, thanks to the Web Services framework that RaÃºl and I developed last month. (I am hoping that the framework is reviewed and accepted into Sugar so that it will be easier for people to test and enhance it.)
3. Â GuzmÃ¡n Trinidad has written a book about Physics on the XO (SeeÂ FÃsica con XO). It features many of the projects that GuzmÃ¡n and Tony Forster have been developing, using a combination of Measure and Turtle Blocks.
