Great, I couldn't think of a better person to run with this!

With regards to the SkoleLinux meeting in Oslo that dfarning forwarded 
earlier today I'm thinking that it would make sense to come up with a 
list of events in the next 6 months that Sugar Labs might want to attend.

Also we should be broadening our focus to attend relevant educational / 
  computers in education events, conferences, symposiums, etc., because 
that's were we really need to be!

Apart from that it might make sense to restart the discussion about 
having a separate event such as an OLPC / Sugar grassroots conference, 
something that SJ, Greg, Aaron, Tano, Matt Kellers and others have been 
discussing on and off for the past 9 months or so.

Off to look for an ice cream store here in Brno,
