We are now accepting poster submissions! Some people have written and said that they would be unable to attend the community summit in San Francisco. If you can't make it to San Francisco, this is a good way for the others to know about your effort.

OLPC SF Community Summit 2012 - Call for proposals now open

Submitted by sverma on Tue, 2012-08-14 01:15

Call for proposals for OLPC San Francisco Community Summit 2012 is now open. Sessions will be on Saturday, Oct 20 and Sunday, Oct 21 2012.

Keep in mind that we are looking for workshop-style sessions, and not just slide presentations. The goal of the sessions is to present information and to work on problems. Think of other people who may be interested in working with you. Talk to them and put them on your proposals. Think constructive, not just instructive!

Let the ideas flow!

We be crankin'

Here are two observations:

  1. If you've ever used the OLPC crank charger, you'll know that while it works as advertised, it takes a lot of cranking. The charger would work better if it could be attached to a wheel. Then, you could rotate it by fitting it on to a bicycle, a sewing machine, etc. To that end, I took apart the handle and saw that one could easily fit a small wheel on to the shaft.
