From Adam Holt:

Every week you will learn completely new tricks about how to build local edutech community, during our global audio/chat calls, that you will be able to use the rest of your life. I want to give out a red XO every week to the local who most vividly/authentically communicates her/his on-the-ground accomplishment, experience, eye-opening trivia (or quite simply photography) onto http://olpcMAP.net , til they run out!  Or will they ;)

*VERY* preliminary schedule follows — dates and 4PM EST/EDT Sunday timing will both change if we can hopefully accommodate the “doer” country/group’s request:
