One Laptop per Child (OLPC) enthusiast and founder of OLPC News Wayan Vota has started a new venture, OLPC Learning Club – Washington, DC. It’s a grassroots organization with the mission of allowing people within the same geographic area to get together to discuss, develop for, and learn more about the use of the OLPC XO laptop.
This first meeting of the OLPC Learning Club is happening this month in Washington DC at the Wonderland Ballroom in the Columbia Heights neighborhood around 7pm on December 18th. If you’re a fan of the little green machine, you should definitely be there. I will be.
If you know me, you know that I’m a HUGE supporter of the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative. Here in Washington DC, Peter Corbett and friends are throwing the Technoliday Party. It’s a holiday party where the proceeds from the event go to support OLPC and the work that they’re doing around the world. Support OLPC and attend the Technoliday Party.
By the way…while you’re getting your check book out to support One Laptop per Child, watch some of the BBC’s awesome videos about OLPC project.
Masi Oka, who we commonly know as Hiro Nakamura from NBC’s TV show Heroes, has recently filmed a TV commercial for One Laptop per Child’s (OLPC) Give One Get One program.
Check out the commercial and donate to OLPC.
It’s so exciting to hear that One Laptop per Child has started mass production of their XO Laptop (
$100 $200 laptop). Congrats to the whole OLPC team. You guys are heroes. I’m excited to see the effect that these efforts will have around the world.
