OLPC News Birmingham Adult XO Showcase - Today!


One Laptop Per Child is big in Birmingham. There are 10,000 XO laptops out among schoolchildren, starting with the Glen Iris School, and 5,000 more are to be deployed. So far, everyone's been focused on what the XO can do for kids, and rightly so.

Adults can happily XO too

Now let's take a look at the fun parents and other kids at heart can have with our favorite Linux-based laptop. On Monday, December 22, OLPC News is proud to invite you to an adult XO showcase with several B'ham XO enthusiasts and I.

With all that geeky goodness, parents, kids, and the just plain interested should plan on joining us for the:
OLPC News B'Ham Meetup
An Adult XO Showcase
Monday, December 22, 6-8pm
Mellow Mushroom at Five Points South
For those who aren't so geeky, we'll be showing off ways to chat iPhone to XO - a trick that will impress any party.

I would like to read a report on the project in Birmingham.


I so wish I cold be there. But next best would be chatting from my iPhone. I'll be commuting home, so TXT me first.


Woohoo! The meetup has started and we already have a local celebrity in attendance. Johnathan F Austin, the next Birmingham City Council member.

Johnny was just sworn in this morning.


Congratulations, Johnny! It's great to have an XO advocate on the Birmingham City Council.
