We received the most amazing email:
Your material is on the One Laptop Per Child! We're trying to see if we can get some summary statistics about it, and I'll keep you posted to let you know where your material has gone. Suffice it to say, we're sure that your material has made it as far as the test villages for the launch in Libya.
I'd been contacted a few months ago about submitting music to this incredible project which aims to create a $100 laptop for mass distribution for developing countries around the world. In addition to functional software, the laptops have entertainment which include games and music.

Three of our songs were selected: A Girl Named Tex, BATE, and Oh Five!
I can't begin to describe how humbling it is for all of us to be a tiny part of something that big.
