If everybody agrees the next meeting should be held online either on
#olpc-meeting or I can create one for our uk group.
The OLPC UK community is and will be distributed across various cities and
towns across the UK. Ensuring maximum participation in meetings should be a
priority. The best and easiest solution would be to host meetings online.
To maintain the human touch, we should have annual social/community get
togethers to meet people in person. Preferably in the summer.
I have also created an OLPC UK facebook group for social networking within
the community. It is a test to see how useful it is. If there is no
interest, I will cancel the FB group.
I see the development of the OLPC UK group in three phases:
A) The Beginning Phase
B) The Organisational Phase
C) The Stable Phase
The are several items of action for step A, we don't need to be too specific
in defining the groups future plans at this stage. We need to map out the
goals of the organisation. Planning the future course of action is
essential; it will determine what has to be done. Later, we can worry about
when and how these goals can be accomplished. Some fairly concrete
guidelines should be established first. For example, need to draw up a list
of priorities in terms of what must be done in order of importance.
I'll see you all the next meeting hopefully. The previous and current venue
is not appropriate for me.

of ideas and a great variety of people and backgrounds; an excellent
platform for a successful organisation.
