OLPC: The Prequel
The “Cube” in the basement of the MIT Media Lab
Our next meeting will be at the Arlington Career Center in Virginia.
Mike Lee will distill several years of visits to the MIT Media Lab into a photo log on the culture of innovation and invention that gave rise to the One Laptop Per Child project. To make more tangible some of the lab’s work, several commercially available products from spinoff companies and sponsors will be demonstrated including the Ambient Orb, Clocky, LEGO Mindstorms, Scratch Sensor Board, Hyperscore, and E-ink.
Then we’ll cover the news on OLPC’s software Update.1 for the XO laptop and help install it for the brave. Much meshing should ensue.
We’ll also bring back the raffle with at least one XOView Camera Viewfinder as a prize.
UPDATE: An event page for this meeting has been created on Facebook.
