Who? An Ecosystem

Many stakeholders can be key players in the One Laptop per Child or Sugar projects. The projects depend on volunteers taking on tasks from a wide spectrum of support opportunities by collaborating in education, technology, and outreach. The inter-relationships of key players is represented in this Ecosystem diagram. Every picture or part tells a story. You can trace 'links' from any element in the system to its influence on any other element. These reveal inherent iteration cycles. Repetition and practice lead to improvements.

Color scheme

  • I'm used to seeing neutral gray backgrounds that offset the Sugar-themed colors to highlight content categories. --FGrose 14:41, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
  • I'm a little red-green deficient in my color vision, and I have trouble distinguishing the color groups on the diagram and key. I think the red-brown tones in the overall background are causing interference with my perception of the soft green yellow fields. Brighter tones are not needed, just more independent colors --FGrose 16:47, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
