While a number of very dedicated individuals from the UK are contributing to OLPC and Sugar in various ways the country so far lacked a real community infrastructure. This is about to change very soon as the first ever OLPC UK community meeting was just announced to take place on April 8!
Here's the agenda from the meeting's wiki page:
- OLPC Update
- Introductions - an opportunity for all attendees to introduce themselves and share their thoughts on OLPC involvement
- OLPC UK - open forum on what the group believes could be achieved by an OLPC UK organisation
- Progress - the UK is lucky to have a number of people already involved in and contributing to the OLPC cause; some of whom will be attending and able to update us on efforts so far
- XO Demonstrations - thank you to a large number of you who have advised you will be bringing an XO; it will be excellent for those that don't yet own one to gain a stronger understanding of the technology behind the cause
