Christian, Raj & All,

Thanks for your tremendous help at -- being stuck on the East Cost it really means a lot hearing the OLPC/Sugar booth has the "most heart" of all booths at SCaLE.

Caryl & I are trying hard to finalize our LA/SoCal olpcMAP Jam time Monday night, making sure everyone who wants to jump in and fully showcase+beautify their work now has that chance -- after 3 years: (or even just 3 days for the new folks!)

Caryl & family get all the credit, truthfully.  Now's our turn to follow her lead, mapmaking together, getting to know everyone's great community projects on map above -- putting on paper our solid prep discussion Caryl led last week here:

Do you think 7PM PST (10PM EST) Monday makes sense??  Or any other time Monday that works better, let us know!!

to OLPC Southern California, Support Gangsters, IAEP,,
Emails I've received all wkd are evidence of the infectious spirit Caryl's brought to so, so many, Thanks for your absolutely non-stop work organizing Caryl! (as I hide in the true Northern CA here ;)

So many of us are looking forward to all your stories Monday night, as we help you map this year's contributions from volunteers, and award a Red XO to the community project you believe best showcases (on map) OLPC/Sugar progress & possibility:

    7pm PST (10pm EST)

    +1 866 213-2185    or    +1 609 454-9914
    Access Code: 1671650#

    (that's #olpc-help on

Thanks for inviting your truest LA edutech gangs -- it's no coincidence Los Angeles and Latin America share initials ;)  Making sure everyone who wants to jump in to showcase+beautify their hard-fought education technology project -- now has that chance, after 3 years.  Or even just 3 days for new folks!

Following Caryl's pioneering 2009 lead (,, everyone now has this golden opportunity for Mapmaking Together: bringing independent edutech projects onto everybody's community map.  Even if only herself (Teacher Caryl & secret support team AKA husband) could bring these Southern California after-school experiments & accomplishments full circle :)
Please join us Monday evening -- exceptional and diverse efforts appearing here soon!

PS If *you* want to co-lead one of our weekly mapmaking events or schedule your own, to activate STREETS-IS-TALKIN' participation around educational technology in any school/city/region -- even if it's not all OLPC/Sugar -- definitely please contact me, and we'll give you the tools :)

Weekly Spring Calendar evolving here, thanks to volunteers everywhere:
