Thanks Morgan, our OLPC Canuckistan BBQ was a huge success with over 30
people, communicating Kenya's grassroots action, on the side raising
funds for important grassroots work in Haiti -- see you soon/January :)
Tonight's MAPPY HOUR Toronto, at 6:30pm, is a really great followup
event open to all who can meet downtown, please do -- Richard W will be
there for you!
And Tuesday's in Waterloo, also at 6:30pm, likewise hosted by Richard
and open to anybody taking local/global community/wilderness-mapping
REQUEST: Chris Tyler asks for your presence Oct 27-29 showcasing
OLPC/Sugar at York Univ / Seneca College major annual FSOSS, with
Toronto Linuxfest, if anyone can please help in person??
(Free-as-in-beer tickets to the entire Free/Open SW Symposium if you
give a presentation!!)
