Instead of doing a regular meeting this month, we are planning a
community summit! OLPC NYC is doing something similar on the 21st, and
we'll do our event on the 21st as well. One on the East coast, and one
on the West coast. Ours will be cooler. Obviously :-)
This is still very new. Take a look. Add yourself to the lists. Be a
volunteer, or a presenter. I spoke with Paul Commons from OLPC when
they visited last week. We'll have some participation from them. The
event will be an "unconference" with a "Birds of a feather" flavor.
Please use the wiki or mailing list to propose topics, presentations,
panels, etc. and make this *your* event.
We usually have a problem at the meetings where the topic is too
deployment-centric or too technical, and others feel left out. At this
event, we'll have parallel sessions for "Education" Technology" and
"Outreach" (we have three rooms) so that you can pick the ones you
like and skip the ones you don't!
More details to come soon. We have the rooms booked, so I can
comfortably announce it here. Many of the deployment teams have also
agreed to take part in one way or the other. So, start racking your
brains and propose topics. Anything OLPC and sugar related goes.
Curriculum, Deployment tips and tricks, School Servers, Python
hackery, Moodle, Sugar on a Stick, etc. Make it sing!
We'll also try to link up with the NYC event at some point and
