While going through a ton of "OLPC" Google news-alerts in my inbox I found an interesting blog entry which contained a Google Maps mashup which apparently tracks OLPC deployments around the globe.
Since one of the most popular questions at presentations is where XOs are being tested already this map comes in quite handy. Unfortunately it's not quite clear to me what the source for the information being displayed in the mashup is and whether it's based on official data from OLPC itself.

When it comes to OLPC deployments and pilots it's notoriously hard to find reliable information anywhere. So when asked I normally reply with a standard list of countries which I take from the Deployment entry on the OLPC wiki. However the map displayed above contains some additional places such as Yemen and Mali, both countries which I've never heard before in the context of an OLPC deployment.
It's certainly exciting to see that efforts are going on across the globe and I guess it's time to dig around a bit deeper for more information on what exactly is happening in these pilots and deployments!
