Community Deployment MAP SPRINT - Dec 27-31 in Boston
holt at laptop.org
Fri Oct 29 17:20:34 EDT 2010
Talented social cartographers & deployment folks from across the
OLPC/Sugar community will be fly to Boston Dec 27-31 -- to physically
map our geo-social fabric of small/medium/large implementations in
completely new ways -- on and around CMU/Nick Doiron's rapidly evolving
global deployment/volunteering map:
Just like a Book Sprint (writing an entire book within a week, like
http://laptop.org/manual) we will beautify, rigorize and publish this
community product within 5 business days.
We are looking for our very best talent globally to join us, to lay
critical seeds Connecting-The-Dots of learning/deployment/content
knowledge globally, starting with one single student's social map --
that has already powerfully captured the popular imagination of
deployments worldwide, since its alpha-launch in San Francisco last week.
SAVE THE DATE, and RSVP early to confirm your (a) contribution and (b)
spot! We have a long way to go, and need your help. The venue will
likely be OLPC's headquarters, in Cambridge, Massachusetts or a nearby
university -- both very conveniently transit-accessible to Boston's
airport "BOS". Details to follow later in November, off of this page:
Thank you to the organizing volunteers (email beautify at olpcMAP.net)
already INvesting so much of their personal/family resources, flying in
during 2010's Season of Giving, just 2 months away now, to celebrate a
Cause They Believe In. That cause being to grow our community of
face2face deployment doers, with new volunteer/internship opportunities

I with match up rich volunteers with poor, just as I did in
http://olpcSF.org/summit, to make sure housing and a few _select
airfares are covered, when truly exceptional talent is demonstrated_.
