TiddlyWiki on the XO-1 (OLPC laptop)

Jeremy and I took some time out with Jim Gettys today to have a look at another couple of development builds of the XO-1 (aka the One Laptop Per Child laptop).

We were pretty astonished to find that we could load a TiddlyWiki off a USB stick and into the XO’s browser and it worked fine. We could even save changes back to the stick, which is pretty neat.

A google blog search for “tiddlywiki education” returns lots of results – the fact that TiddlyWiki runs on the XO is pretty cool for anyone interested in the intersection of software, TiddlyWiki and education in the developing world.
