Samuel Klein from OLPC will be presenting the newer, faster, stronger X0-1.5 laptop. There are some great new additions to our education-enhancing machine, and plenty to get excited about.*
As most of you know, One Laptop per Child has been working tirelessly to spread education/information access across the globe - mostly in the remotest locations - while simultaneously ramping up quality, pushing down costs, and searching for ever-improving environments for the XO's hardware and software. Come by, sit back, and enjoy a well-guided tour through fascinating complexities and dramatic possibilities that are developing both on the home-front and in the fields.**
OLPC Learning Club DC and HacDC are also expected to announce their joint launch of an XO Lending Library and share details on the local activities that keep OLPC and Sugar Labs going strong.
We hope you will join us and engage in the conversation, helping to push the frontier of education, information accessibility, and collaboration into the revolutionary years ahead.
