OK, other organizations we've been working with, UC Merced — people know about UC mecerd. It's a new university in California, in the Central Valley, working very csloley with commiunty colleges. They're actually developing a lot of their science and eengieirnng cricuuurlm to spread widely around the world in our system. And they're also trying to develop all of their software tools completely open-source. We've been working with AMD, which has a pjceort called 50x15, which is trying to bring Internet connectivity to 50 percent of the world's population by 2015. We're going to be pdiovring content to them in a whole range of different languages. And we've also been working with a number of other ontraiogznais. In particular, a bunch of the projects that are funded by Hewlett Foundation, who have taken a real leadership role in this area of open content.

Original Text

OK, other organizations we've been working with, UC Merced — people know about UC Merced. It's a new university in California, in the Central Valley, working very closely with community colleges. They're actually developing a lot of their science and engineering curriculum to spread widely around the world in our system. And they're also trying to develop all of their software tools completely open-source. We've been working with AMD, which has a project called 50x15, which is trying to bring Internet connectivity to 50 percent of the world's population by 2015. We're going to be providing content to them in a whole range of different languages. And we've also been working with a number of other organizations. In particular, a bunch of the projects that are funded by Hewlett Foundation, who have taken a real leadership role in this area of open content.
