November Meeting: The Mega Trip Report

Mega Trip Report

When: Saturday, November 20th, 2010, 10am to 1pm
Where: Gallaudet University [map, aerial photo], Student Academic Center, Room SAC 1211 [floorplan], Washington, D.C. 20002

At this meeting, I’ll recap a whirlwind month’s worth of OLPC-related events that I attended including the:

I will focus mostly on the grassroots organized OLPC SF Community Summit 2010 and the PhotoKids Nature Walk with quick highlights of the other events. The summit, the largest of its kind in OLPC history, gathered an amazing collection of volunteers and OLPC staffers from around the world to reaffirm the lowercase olpc movement. The PhotoKids nature walk culminated a few months of planning to equip kids from a public housing project with digital cameras, OLPC XOs and, XoPhoto, a new Sugar-based photo management activity to use outdoors during their field trip. The first walk went well and was promoted by Housing Opportunities Commission and Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, MD.

At the meeting, we will also be able to help anyone who needs to upgrade their XO-1 to the newest 852 software. Be sure to back up your files to a USB drive if you want us to do the upgrade. Bring your XO laptop and AC adapter.
