The World in Your Library: an OLPC News Brooklyn Meetup


Please join me at The World in Your Library symposium this Friday, March 14, at LACUNY in Brooklyn, NY.

There, we'll meet international librarians from Hungary, Latin America, Pakistan and Zimbabwe who will share their experiences on key issues including intellectual freedom, user services and professional development.

In addition, Josh Gay of Free Software Foundation, David Rothman of TeleRead and Wayan Vota of OLPC News will be discussing:

Combating the Digital Divide and Information Limits around the Globe

  • Free and Open Source Initiatives
  • eBook Reader Comparison
  • XO Laptop Demonstration
3-6pm, March 14th, 2008
Brooklyn College Library
2900 Bedford Avenue (map)

For the last activity, I'd love to see a field of green XO laptops from the NYCXO User Group in the audience. This is a great opportunity to mesh with other G1G1 participants and expand the OLPC support network.
