Launch party is in SF. They also have SF State University on the list.
We'll plan on doing something around that time as well to highlight
both the XO and Sugar. We do have LTSP and Sugar (0.86) now running on
campus, although there are several issues to be addressed there. Maybe
we can do a LTSP + Sugar setup to coincide with this event.
