Talented social cartographers & deployment folks from across the 
OLPC/Sugar community will be fly to Boston Dec 27-31 -- to physically 
map our geo-social fabric of small/medium/large implementations in 
completely new ways -- on and around CMU/Nick Doiron's rapidly evolving 
global deployment/volunteering map:


Just like a Book Sprint (writing an entire book within a week, like 
http://laptop.org/manual) we will beautify, rigorize and publish this 
community product within 5 business days.

We are looking for our very best talent globally to join us, to lay 
critical seeds Connecting-The-Dots of learning/deployment/content 
knowledge globally, starting with one single student's social map -- 
that has already powerfully captured the popular imagination of 
deployments worldwide, since its alpha-launch in San Francisco last week.

SAVE THE DATE, and RSVP early to confirm your (a) contribution and (b) 
spot!  We have a long way to go, and need your help.  The venue will 
likely be OLPC's headquarters, in Cambridge, Massachusetts or a nearby 
university -- both very conveniently transit-accessible to Boston's 
airport "BOS".  Details to follow later in November, off of this page:


Thank you to the organizing volunteers (email beautify at olpcMAP.net) 
already INvesting so much of their personal/family resources, flying in 
during 2010's Season of Giving, just 2 months away now, to celebrate a 
Cause They Believe In.  That cause being to grow our community of 
face2face deployment doers, with new volunteer/internship opportunities 
None Of Us Have Yet Imagined.  So far we have these powerhouse

_Please spread the word to our most effective global contributors now_.  
I with match up rich volunteers with poor, just as I did in 
http://olpcSF.org/summit, to make sure housing and a few _select 
airfares are covered, when truly exceptional talent is demonstrated_.  
See you there!!
