Thanks to the dozen great writers/communicators who've RSVP'd and 
committed to attend!   I've posted all your flight dates here:


Fantastic News -- 3 absolutely stellar volunteers have stepped forward 
keeping us all on track:

  1) Before the sprint, Mark Battley (Kenya, Tanzania) will be hacking 
Sugar video tutorials, and then showing us all how -- with his amazing 
new Sugar-on-a-Stick equipment & rig that stands to empower all, to make 
their own Khan Academy / Lynda.com-like personal Sugar tutorials (very 
compelling shorts vids) around FotoToon, Scratch, Etc.

  2) During the Apr 6-10 sprint itself, like he did incredibly in Sept 
2008, Seth Woodworth will do his very best act as Editor helping all 
keep focus on our actual http://laptop.org/manual and Help Activity, no 
matter how long or short your own chapter!  Most Crucially, Seth can 
provide us stylistic guidelines (text & screenshots) as well as package 
it up in a browser as best he can, cognizant of our always-evolving doc 
dreams, eg: 
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2012-March/thread.html#15062 and 
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2012-March/thread.html#15130 .  
Plz all go out of your way to support Seth, offering to volunteer for 
this absolutely priceless endeavor!!

  3) An action-packed social calendar is coming together thanks to Laura 
de Reynal, so you can get to know Boston in the evenings, kicking back 
with new Sugar/OLPC volunteers bringing exciting new from far reaches of 
the planet, /never forgetting why we're all here :)/

THANK YOU All for attending, _working your asses off on your favorite 
chapter most important,_ remembering to RSVP (holt at laptop.org) so I can 
confirm OLPC HQ's small office in fact has room for you!  And until we 
meet in exactly 2 weeks, keep your eyes on our wiki and evolving plans here:

     http://j.mp/xomanual  (click EDIT on top, whatever your chapter 
plans, fill us in!)
Virtual Romance Ain't :) * Book Sprints depend on the in-person dynamic 
around 1 single table.  Still, if in-person attendance is abolutely 
impossible, please talk to Caryl Bigenho on our public 
list<mailto:library at lists.laptop.org> *library at lists.laptop.org* 
(http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/library) if you are motivated to write 
a particular chapter, but cannot attend in person, thanks!! EG. We're 
thrilled OLPC Australia's Education Manager Tracy Richardson hopes to 
contribute remotely.*

*Accommodations Are:* Everyone's responsible for their OWN housing in 
Boston, but if you're completely stuck call me and I just MIGHT be able 
to help!!
