From Adam Holt:

In 2009 Caryl Bigenho took the pioneering initiative of building the 1st known /local/ (and lowercase ;)) olpcMAP, showcasing ~10 Sugar/XO projects — long before olpcMAP.net itself reached 500 volunteer/projects — crystallizing and catalyzing a community now made up of well over 100 Southern California volunteers:

*Thanks OLPC Southern California OSSIE (Open Source Software in Education!) *We’ve come a long way Babe!

Now, on Sunday 1PM PST (that’s 4PM EST) we’re coming together to reinforce Caryl’s extensive+amazing “glocal” mentoring of projects around her city, and around the globe.  Much of this work done silently around http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Contributors_program and not yet recognized by anyone at all!  And she’s not the only one.

So our “barn raising” will introducing new larger LA/Southern Calif edutech volunteers to the next level here — to each other — and to each others’ projects we’ll work together to showcase here:  http://olpcMAP.net/?go=southern_california

In preparation for Feb 25-27’s quite huge SCALE / Southern CA Linux Expo:  http://www.socalLinuxExpo.org/scale9x/

     Sunday Feb 20, 1PM PST  (4PM EST) +1 866 213-2185    or    +1 609 454-9914
     Access Code: 1671650# Backchannel:     http://forum.laptop.org/chat

Sunday we’re all about to learn how far we’ve come, with OLPC/Sugar/edutech with along our favorite Hollwood iBoulevards &
iHighways — next week we’ll be hitting the longer road exploring a new city/region each week, so think hard about those Sugar/OLPC teachers/kids projects in your own town that have done phenomenal stuff, WHY YOUR CITY IS DIFFERENT, and most important the secret dad/sister/mentors behind the scenes who deserves their fair shake /quiet honor around our global community map at long last (lowercase+UPPERCASE ;))

Those who share the very most creative stories of grassroots/community accomplishment (whether told already in http://planet.laptop.org and http://planet.sugarlabs.org) or not, will receive a RED XO, as a month+
ago here, when so many similarly unknown talents were shared here: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OlpcMAP/Trivia_Contest
