Nice one, it would be good to get moving on the public facing side of the
OLPC, are you and anyone around in London to have a design/planning
catchup/pint and thrash out all the details about getting the site rolling.?
I'm good for next wednesday... Could mix the virtual and realworld using
EVocam or something to share with those unable to physically attend, as to
be honest, starting the planning always works best with bits of paper, pens,
wifi and a few laptops and all being in the same room with lots of coffee.
What would also be very, very useful at this stage is for everyone to
identify (list is good, short list is even better) the who, what and why's
of the OLPC-UK site, that gives us some starting points for thinking about
what we're going to achieve.
Glad to hear someones started looking at branding and identity, have you got
any early work to post?

> 3) Supporter group and logo
> To get things moving I have started work on a facebook group and a logo.
> I have looked at the various logos used by country specific olpc community
> organisations to get an an idea of the logo we could use for the OLPC UK
> group. To ensure a neat look I want to keep the olpc "branding". The whole
> idea of a logo is to ensure that it is instinctively recognisable, indicate
> it's origin. I am not too keen on steering away from this. I did'nt really
> like the logo used by olpc-france, by way of an example.
> My brother, who is an DTP expert, will be giving me a hand and I will be
> working on a few more logos.
> The facebook group is intended to be used for forming and fostering a
> supporter community. I have not opened the facebook group yet. Will discuss
> during the meeting on Wednesday.
> The facebook and logo are work in progress.
