November: Amping up OLPC NY; DC meeting date change
The illustration at left is one where, for fun, I Photoshopped the OLPC XO into the hands of Lady Liberty to create a graphic for the upcoming OLPC / Sugar Labs community meeting in New York City. A few of us are going to take the Bolt Bus up to the Big Apple to help out with the meeting, so we’re moving up our DC meeting date and location for November.
The OLPC / Sugar Labs Community Summit aims to re-catalyze the NYC-area community and touch off regular meetings again. Time, location and agenda details:
The 1PM formal presentation will include:
- OLPC’s brand new XO 1.5 B2 Laptop
- Summary account of the 1 Million XO Laptops now shipped around the world
- Previews of upcoming Sugar Learning software
- Some directly personal explanations of our movement’s strongly maturing “volunteer ladder”.
- Come see some actual books written by our Community!
- Participate and strategize around OLPC and Sugar’s unheralded successes
- Local Projects, and long-term forward path.
Anyone interested in impacting education worldwide is welcome. More information about the summit can be found on the wiki page. There is also a collection of promotional graphics, Meetup event listing and email list.
