Reminder: GrassCon to take place this Saturday


I briefly wanted to remind everybody that the previously mentioned OLPC Grassroots Web Conference (GrassCon) will take place this coming Saturday, July 19, at 10 AM EST. The theme of the conference is "From Code to Kids", and looking at the conference lineup below I have to say that I'm really looking forward to the presentations. Even though it means kicking myself out of bed before 7 a.m. as I'll be in San Francisco at the time!

10:00 - 10:12 Introduction (technical difficulties... etc.)
10:15 - 10:27 Alex Keybl - [email protected]'s College Model
10:30 - 10:42 Timothy Falconer - Waveplace Foundation
10:45 - 10:57 Tomi Davies - The Galadima Experience
11:00 - 11:12 Rabi Karmacharya - OLPC Implementation in Nepal
11:15 - 11:27 Tom Boonsiri - OLPC Golden State (Prerecorded)
11:30 - 11:42 Mel Chua - State of OLPC Grassroots Efforts
11:45 - 11:57 Nikki Lee - Olin University Chapter
12:00 - 12:12 Christoph Derndorfer - Moving from talk to action.
12:15 Concluding Remarks

Please join us on Saturday on the GrassCon channel on Everybody can participate, and there will be a question/answer session after each presentation.

We also hope to feature GrassCon live on the site here by embedding the streaming web player in an article on Saturday. It will certainly be interesting to see how it all works out and I'm looking forward to seeing everybody there! And in the meantime I'll get back to preparing my 12min presentation...
