OLPC Austria grassroot community works

Thanks to Wayan from olpcnews.com. Olpcnews is a big site for reading about the OLPC project - although not to be confused with the official OLPC news feed. Sometimes OLPCNews is very critical to the whole project but - on the other hand - that is also what it takes - constructive criticism is important. Wayan took my article and posted it. Thanks! I am very curious how the solar mesh node develops.
Meanwhile we founded the OLPC local austrian grassroots developer community. Bertl from bitfrost fame is part of it and others are gearing up and experimenting with the XOs we got from OLPC. Stay tuned for results.

presenting the XO in Vienna



I presented the XO at the local linux weeks in Vienna on Sat, 2nd of June.
I hope to get some developers to join in some python coding sessions. The local media reported about it.

My slides are here.

One very nice experience was when one of our younger colleagues was explaining the laptop to grown ups.

On 2007/06/03 ORF1, the main Austrian TV station, will report on the XOs during prime time.
Here you can find an excerpt from the report which was broadcasted
