Mr. Holt from OLPC central, has asked that I forward off an "official" hosting-type invitation for the gathering this Saturday, November 27, in Toronto. Adam Holt and Jennifer Martino, the official OLPC laptop.org types, are seldom in the GTA neighbourhood, so this is a great opportunity to have them both here together.
The meeting will be hosted at my office, EP Canada, 130 Bloor Street West, 5th Floor. Closest parking is one block north on Cumberland, closest subway stop, Bay - on the Bloor Line. For those coming from afar, the road construction on the North-South routes in our fair city is rampant. Allow about 30 minutes to get from the 401 to Avenue Road and Bloor, or park at a northerly or westerly subway station, and come in by TTC The Gardiner Expressway from the west is also under construction. Yes, our mayor bikes to work.
Due to conflicting schedules, it would appear now that the best time to have the session is from 3-5pm. I'll bring in some snacks and beverages; but it will be too late for brunch, and a tad early for dinner. I understand some might not be able to get here until 3:30, and some will be leaving sharp at 5pm.
Please write down my cell number or store it in your cell phone, as building security will be active, and the concierge is seldom by the door. As such, a call to 416-562-3623 will bring me to the door to let you in, and get you up in the elevator.
Also, please let me know if you are allergic to anything and I will avoid having that onsite. I will be getting the snacks from Whole Foods, so if you have any favourite things, let me know. Yes, in a co-incidental twist, this is the same Whole Foods which was opened and run for years by our San Francisco OLPC friends, the Kleiders!
There is no participant cost for this meeting . Please invite all of your OLPC- interested colleagues, stakeholders, and any potential future OLPC participants :).
Please respond, either individually or in bulk, and let me know how many will be arriving in your party so that I can approximate the requirements for refreshments.
Thank you, and on behalf of Mr. Holt, we look forward to seeing you then.
