Bootcamp day 3 is done!*

See: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Grassroots_bootcamp/Results

Highlights include:

* Feedback from Tuesday's classroom roleplay - next round, we need to 
find a way to actually work with kids during the bootcamp. This time 
around was tough because of end-of-school-year scheduling and 
during-the-day bootcamp timing.
* Pre-luncheon guests Kim Quirk (VP of Software and Support) and Joe 
Feinstein (OLPC's new QA head honcho) came in to talk about how to get 
involved in the upcoming surge of community testing.
* Guest speaker Josh Gay from the FSF gave a lunch presentation on 
"Designing for Participation" - the cycle of defining projects and goals 
in such a way that it makes it easy for volunteers to get involved.
* Seth Woodworth and SJ Klein led a discussion on "community APIs" and what

Full notes and transcripts from the day (super-helpful, with much more 
detail - most of these transcripts are quite good, thanks to our 
volunteers!) are available at 



*yes, these notes are getting sent out somewhat belatedly - most of the 
bootcampers (myself included) are also recovering from the aftermath of 
the Grassroots Jam, http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Grassroots_Jam.
