Next meeting date and location set
So hold the date…
On Thursday, Jan 31, 2008 from 6:30 – 9pm, we’ll be meeting at
Greater DC Cares 1725 I (Eye) Street, NW, Ground Floor SunTrust Conference Room, Washington, DC 20006
The location is a half block from Farragut West Metro and about two blocks from Farragut North. I’ll do an in-person visit there in the next week to get a sense of the layout of the room as well as test out mesh and wifi access (I have to bring a router) with three or four XOs.
I really liked Wayan’s format of 10-minute podcast-friendly talks. Since I haven’t actually presented, I’d like to do a 10-minute photo tour of the MIT Media Lab and/or OLPC Headquarters. I may be visiting the Media Lab and OLPC before the meeting, so hopefully, I’ll have some fresh photos or even some video.
Then I’m sure Wayan can do a 5 or 10 minute update on the “State of OLPC.” Wayan will not be at the meeting because he’ll be honeymooning!
Lastly, I’d like to ask for a good presenter from our membership to do a quick lesson on something mesh-friendly like exchanging objects in Etoys, or perhaps orchestrating a TamTam band between a group of XOs.
Parents who want to bring kids are welcome to do so! The presentations should end by 7:10 and we’ll have from then until 9pm to mesh around. I’m thinking about kid-centered XO field trips on weekends for when it gets warmer, and I’d love to get input on that.
