Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the XOcamp2 miniconference Pixie Dust abode!

Pixie Dust [pik-see duhst]
1. dust purported to be produced by pixies. Known to grant magical abilities to those who harness its power to bring an XO to life in the dense and remote corners of the developing world
2. support gang - highly motivated, jovial, diverse, with a zest for troubleshooting green toys
3. community building - sociable and affable grassroots volunteers bonding for a noble cause
4. repair centers - the people with the magic potion to heal the XO's
5. smaller pilots and awareness - the little seeds that grow, spread and flourish

The Pixie Dust component of XOCamp2 will focus on the recent past, present and future of the critical supporting infrastructure that sustains the OLPC project lifeline: Support Gang, Community Building, Repair Centers and Smaller Pilots and associated awareness. We will reflect on past success, real world issues that affect future growth and discuss short and long term strategic direction.
