First Part

Set of common guidelines


  • Agreed: OLPC Europe can be a good contact point between Boston and local groups
  • Agreed: Help in Remote Deployment
  • Agreed: OLPC Europe doesn't do pilots but helps the grassroots
  • Be a platform for exchanging / borrowing Laptops for events


  • Agreed: the olpc europe guidelines need a proper voting procedure or something to find consensus (today we said "agreed" when in fact not everybody agreed but only 90%)
  • Agreed: most people want to keep the infrastructure focused on laptop.org with discussions about extensions if required
  • Log: most people want to get involved / contribute time to olpc europe


  • Log: mburns and isforinsects (Seth woodworth) are talking about a consolidated blog, covering pilots and other communities
  • Basically Agreed: use OLPC Europe as a starting point
  • Basically Agreed: use grassroots mailing list at the moment (l-fy protested)
