In 2009 Caryl Bigenho took the pioneering initiative of building the 1st 
known /local/ (and lowercase ;) olpcMAP, showcasing ~10 Sugar/XO 
projects -- long before olpcMAP.net itself reached 500 
volunteer/projects -- crystallizing and catalyzing a community now made 
up of well over 100 Southern California volunteers:


*Thanks OLPC Southern California OSSIE (Open Source Software in 
Education!) *We've come a long way Babe!

Now, on Sunday 1PM PST (that's 4PM EST) we're coming together to 
reinforce Caryl's extensive+amazing "glocal" mentoring of projects 
around her city, and around the globe.  Much of this work done silently 
around http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Contributors_program and not yet 
recognized by anyone at all!  And she's not the only one.

So our "barn raising" will introducing new larger LA/Southern Calif 
edutech volunteers to the next level here -- to each other -- and to 
each others' projects we'll work together to showcase here:


In preparation for Feb 25-27's quite huge SCALE / Southern CA Linux Expo:

     (that's #olpc-help on irc.freenode.net)

Sunday we're all about to learn how far we've come, with 
OLPC/Sugar/edutech with along our favorite Hollwood iBoulevards & 
iHighways -- next week we'll be hitting the longer road exploring a new 
city/region each week, so think hard about those Sugar/OLPC 
teachers/kids projects in your own town that have done phenomenal stuff, 
WHY YOUR CITY IS DIFFERENT, and most important the secret 
dad/sister/mentors behind the scenes who deserves their fair shake / 
quiet honor around our global community map at long last 
(lowercase+UPPERCASE ;)

Those who share the very most creative stories of grassroots/community 
accomplishment (whether told already in http://planet.laptop.org and 
http://planet.sugarlabs.org) or not, will receive a RED XO, as a month+ 
ago here, when so many similarly unknown talents were shared here:
