 One Laptop Per Child San Francisco is hosting the annual Community Summit this weekend, October 23-25th 2015[1] at San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, Business Building room 202 in San Francisco, CA. You can register online through eventbrite.

 
OLPC San Francisco Community Summit 2015 is a community event that brings together educators, technologists, anthropologists, enthusiasts, champions and volunteers. We share stories, exchange ideas, solve problems, foster community and build collaboration around the One Laptop per Child project and its mission worldwide.
 
On Friday evening, we will be screening WEB at 5pm. The documentary follows Peruvian families living in remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains as their children experience the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) program, gaining access to the Internet for the first time. WEB considers both the benefits and complications that arise from digital connections. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local stories, the film includes interviews with leading thinkers on the Internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte for an insightful look at our times.
