Reaching the summit

From the “Oh-wait-before-I-forget” desk: I mentioned in yesterday’s blog item that we were free of any events leading up to SCALE 11X in Los Angeles in February. Well, let’s back up a little bit, because there’s one more FOSS event that bears mention and, if you’re up to it, your presence.

The OLPC San Francisco Community Summit takes place — where else? — in San Francisco on Oct. 19-21 at the San Francisco State University downtown campus at 835 Market Street.

The summit brings together educators, technologists, anthropologists, enthusiasts, champions and volunteers to share stories, exchange ideas, solve problems, foster community and build collaboration around the One Laptop Per Child project and its mission worldwide.

There are few endeavors in the FOSS realm — or any realm for that matter — which are more noble than the One Laptop Per Child project, and it should be on everyone’s radar.

The event is in its fourth year and is becoming an important part of the XO and OLPC year. Kudos to Sameer Verma of SFSU and the others who make this happen, and I’ll try to make it up for the Sunday sessions.
