One Laptop Per Child San Francisco is hosting the annual Community
Summit this weekend, October 23-25th 2015[1] at San Francisco State
University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, Business Building room 202 in San
Francisco, CA. You can register online through eventbrite[2].

OLPC San Francisco Community Summit 2015 is a community event that
brings together educators, technologists, anthropologists, enthusiasts,
champions and volunteers. We share stories, exchange ideas, solve
problems, foster community and build collaboration around the One Laptop
per Child project and its mission worldwide.

On Friday evening, we will be screening WEB[3]  at 5pm. The documentary
follows Peruvian families living in remote villages in the Amazon Jungle
and Andes Mountains as their children experience the One Laptop per
Child (OLPC) program, gaining access to the Internet for the first time.
WEB considers both the benefits and complications that arise from
digital connections. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local
stories, the film includes interviews with leading thinkers on the
Internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia’s Jimmy
Wales and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte for an insightful look at our
times.
