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.|
Please join us on Saturday on the GrassCon channel on Justin.tv. 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...
