OLPC and Beer Meetup

Hey you, yeah you with the OLPC, your fellow OLPCers are having a meetup on Thursday evening at Lucky Labrador Brew Hall in NW Portland. You should come on out, meet your fellow OLPCers and mesh. Earlier this year, Wayan of OLPCNews came to town to talk about the OLPC and we had a great time meeting others who were supporters of the technology and the vision.

For those of you wondering what I’m talking about, the OLPC stands for One Laptop Per Child. Last Christmas they ran a special called Buy One, Get one which allowed you to buy an OLPC (pictured left) for a child somewhere in the world and you would get your own. Once it hit the geek market in America, the possibilities have been endless. I was amazed at how cool this little guy was and how simple it was to use. Too bad my sausage fingers couldn’t navigate the keyboard. Oh well, I’m no child either.

Come on down to Lucky Lab Thursday night and check them out yourself. The OLPCers are a good bunch and love to talk technology.
