  • Our 2nd OLPC NL meeting took place on Saturday, January 19th 2008, starting at 2 pm, at the Mensenvereniging Wolbodo (SociĆ«teit NOVUM), Verwersdijk 102, 2611 NK Delft. We were this time less people than in Amsterdam - around 20 in total - but had excellent presentations from Reinier on how to get involved into software development for OLPC (see his slides at the meetings page, a presentation from Harrie and Geertie, who are going on a 6 month trip through Asia, visiting OLPC projects and trying to contribute, a presentation by Frits, who gave insight into mobile learning and compared several products on the market as well as a stand-up presentation of Pascal on content production (on health issues) and one of Ewoud, on his ideas on dutch pilots and the possibilities for XOs in the Dutch education system. This afternoon was less stuffed with presentations and we had a great time sitting together and having relaxed conversations with each other on what we are working on and exchanging ideas. Everyone is invited to update the Wiki with subjects that have been discussed (and all other ideas of course as well). Harrie & Geertie as well as Reinier have already added their presentations / information on the projects and meeting pages. Also, Yomo and his friends got in contact with Arline about cooperating in her Give Many activity for Suriname. Bine 15:50, 25 January 2008 (EST)

We hope to be a again a well mixed group of people with different backgrounds (technical, pedagogical, etc.). Bine 03:56, 10 January 2008 (EST)
  • The first OLPC NL meeting was a great success. Lots of people showed up, there were some presentation and a lot of discussion and networking. It was a very interesting mix of people, together we should have what it takes to make interesting things happen. There were people interested in content, coding, lobbying, organisation and several people will be trying to get more XOs available in the Netherlands soon. The 7 XOs in the room gave everyone there a chance to play with them.
