Final agenda for 1/31/08 meeting
I have things finalized for what should be a great meeting this week of the OLPC Learning Club. I think we might even beat our last meeting’s attendance of 42. Our email list now has over 95 names, and the introductions thread on the forum is full of interesting posts. Once again, the time and location:
Thursday, Jan 31, 2008, 6:30-9pm at
The DC Cares web site lists their address as 1727, but we’re actually going in an alternate entrance (links to photos are above). As mentioned before, DC Cares is 1/2 block from Farragut West Metro and 2 blocks from Farragut North. I’m sure there’s parking nearby in the typical downtown garages. Our host is Curtis Cannon if for some reason you don’t see me right away.
I’ll be there an hour early to help get things set up. I’ll bring some extra power strips and a WiFi router as there is no open access point. Mesh should work fine. As kindly suggested by other user groups, it would be a good idea to bring personal contact info cards of some sort for networking, a charged up XO, your green power adapter with an identifying mark or sticker on it and perhaps a fresh USB flash drive 1gb or larger if you want to seek help doing a system upgrade or software install.
Here’s the agenda:
6:30 – Mike’s welcome and logistics for the night
6:50 – Justin Thorp on developing content for the OLPC XO
7:20 – Raffle
7:30 – 9:00 Mingle and mesh
As always, feel free to bring a still or video camera to document the goings-on. We won’t have much more than pitchers of water, so you should try to grab a snack on your way. Kids are welcome. There’s even an adjoining room if they want their own playspace. I’m going to try to push out one more post before Thursday here, so check back if you can.
