Aloha KidCaster's,

We are making great progress here on Maui. Colene Riffo in California has been doing some serious lobbying in her community and shares that its not easy, but she is glad to get folks interested in KidCast for Peace. Listen to her message in KidCast Central: which I will post by Monday.

We continue to raise awarenes and money to support this year's KidCast thanks to Richard Fishman, our friendly fundraiser and telemarketer.... that's what you might consider finding in you community to support your KidCast for Peace effots. I am assembling a press room for KidCast correspondence and other forms you can use in your community to develope sponsors and participation.

We are delighted to welcome new software sponsors including Mark of the Unicorn (Digital Performer donated to support our Ecological Rap music project. More soon...and please, also read the newly posted article on me and KidCast done several years ago (just click on Press in KidCast Central). Real Estate Maui is coming out April 1st with another article on the project including photos. NOW, This just in from someone who has been in the flow for the last few years.

My next move is to go to each school on Maui to elicit the support of the principal, in order to get teachers involved. We are also preparing a KidCast for Peace Participation Handbook to distribute to each kid in each school with instructions, suggestions for the kind of SOLUTIONS we are seeking, and places for advertising (to raise funds and demonstrate community support) -- and for each kid to create an image of their solution for scanning and Gallery of Solutions viewing.

I don't know if any of you are so motivated, but war is not an alternative to creating peace as far as I'm concerned. Let's let our Children speak loudly and clearly FOR PEACE before we start our very old way of resolving arguments on planet Earth. I've got to go. My laptop fried, and I've been asked to pay $300 more a month rent or get out by April 15... Try to produce a global project under those pressures. But, you know what? I can do it! And, so can you! Here's to PEACE!!

PS: BTW, I have successfully used Quicktime Broadcaster to transmit audio and video. I went to Kinkos and used their high bandwidth ethernet connection to the Net. No cost. No problem. Have any of your tried it? Software is free from Apple. -pr-
