Adam Holt-2
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 / 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 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: and .  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 ([hidden email]) 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:  (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[hidden email] [hidden email] ( 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!!
