Revision as of 08:03, 5 August 2007

Proposal: Let's get together online and work on the pages to be put on the XO ($100 Laptop).

Date: Saturday August 12? (It must be before August 15th, which is the deadline for the next release, and Saturday seems like a likely good day for many people.)

Time: perhaps two times, 12 hours apart, so that everyone can make at least one regardless of timezone. They should run for a few hours, anyway.

Who: Anyone who wants to help, anywhere in the world, and has an internet connection, can join us online. If people live near each other they may want to meet up at someone's home or a cheap net cafe (as long as there's enough computers and bandwidth). Mel Chua plans to join us (this party was her suggestion).

How:

  • We'll chat by IRC (freenode, #OLPC-content channel... details to come) to ask questions, encourage each other etc.
  • We'll select the articles we most want to be included (perhaps up to 30 or 40... but start with one for each person online).
  • We'll take one article each from OLPC sitemap to edit (tidy, simply English where it's unnecessarily complex).

Any questions, ask Chriswaterguy.
