Org/go/olpc_Europe/todo 17:43:28 Gregor_Marco starting guide would be great, the exchange of experiences (in pilots) is very important. That is a big problem in Ethipia 17:43:37 h01ger crazy-chris, cheers! 17:44:09 l-fy well, can i have a proposal for olpce website?
Org/go/olpc_Europe 17:38:54 h01ger crazy-chris, yes 17:39:10 h01ger agreed we eksempel want to help remote deployments too. 17:39:20 l-fy if we can't even do a mail list how can we do an organization? 17:39:39 crazy-chris l-fy: please try to be constructive 17:39:40 h01ger topic (15-20min) Participation - who wants to get involved / spending his/her time on what topic(s) 17:39:48 h01ger l-fy, we have a list. 17:39:50 h01ger hi maks_ 17:40:09 crazy-chris so participation 17:40:26 h01ger l-fy, do you want to work on the olpc europe website? 17:41:04 * ryd want t-shirts 17:41:08 l-fy h01ger i've already offered my self voluteer for putting up the mail list and also one. At friends offered a virtual machine fully for the olpc europe 17:41:35 b457144n i'd like to work on a guide for setting up a local pilot. And for remote deployments too, for that matter. 17:41:39 crazy-chris l-fy: what would you want to do except the mailing list? 17:41:56 Gregor_Marco we want to help getting more transparency in Europe, we already work on concepts 17:42:02 * h01ger wants to network with people and help with the website, which imo should be mostly in the laptop.
17:36:43 crazy-chris l-fy: 17:36:49 l-fy long i wait i decrease the chances to have an olpc linux. Ro 17:36:56 b457144n. People in nl are trying to setup up a project in Suriname, but we have no clue how people analysis can support deployment 17:37:34 l-fy so i agree that will not be the mail list the starting point, but something else but we need a starting. 17:37:45 crazy-chris we have the starting point *here* 17:37:46 b457144n boston is more focussed on large deployment than givemany of a few hundred laptops 17:38:00 b457144n i suspect. 17:38:03 l-fy crazy-chris here is nothing as long as you don't exist for the outside world 17:38:13 Gregor_Marco agree, we want remote deployments too 17:38:28 l-fy agree h01ger and Gregor_Marco 17:38:37 crazy-chris next topic? 17:38:47 l-fy a starting point? 17:38:47 h01ger l-fy, thats "bringing our thesis vision to the world" but not "defining our vision" - which is the currnet topic 17:38:51 crazy-chris ptop.
17:34:11 l-fy plus that if we make a mail list we can keep the history in the same place and no one can say that we didn't had a debate 17:34:32 l-fy because is a starting point since we've already agree that we want olpc. 17:34:55 l-fy ryd 5 17:35:15 h01ger does anybody agree with l-fy that we need a europe list now? Otherwise i'd say, lets move.

In a month, yes 17:35:46 l-fy ok, can we talk about a starting point or a road map? 17:35:52 yokoy l-fy: yes, maybe in a few weeks 17:35:56 l-fy ok 17:35:59 h01ger ok 17:36:04 h01ger anything else to vision? 17:36:05 b457144n i agree with rwh that we do want to make it easier for people to help setup remote deployments. 17:36:08 l-fy unfortunatlly is something i have to mention 17:36:23 l-fy romania is one of the countries where microsoft is porting Windows on olpc 17:36:43 h01ger l-fy, how is that related to defining our vision?

17:28:15 Gregor_Marco we agree with l-fy.

Backlog at ml :-) 17:28:29 crazy-chris Gregor_Marco: absolutely 17:28:34 _bernie h01ger: thanks! 17:28:45 * h01ger nods b457144n and Gregor_Marco 17:28:47 aferti regards to europe on my behalf too. 17:28:56 crazy-chris this could take a bit of work off the mit people and focus discussions 17:29:04 ChristophD _bernie, hey 17:29:10 * h01ger waves over the ocean 17:29:17 Gregor_Marco yes, chris 17:29:35 h01ger agreed The best way, olpc europe could help, is to become. 17:29:50 rwh If i understand correctly people are interesting in deploying xo's locally, not in remote developing countries (which is what I had expected)?
17:30:17 Gregor_Marco no 17:30:18 crazy-chris b457144n: this will evolve 17:30:39 * h01ger nods crazy-chris. OO( mail and irc mostly, i guess 17:30:42 Gregor_Marco rwf: olpc for everyone :-) 17:30:49 crazy-chris yes, and we can discuss things on the grassroots list, before contacting boston people 17:31:19 h01ger rwh, thats the goal of olpc. We are olpc europe and most of us also intend to work in olpc 17:31:35 aferti btw, here. 17:31:37 h01ger imho 17:31:45 crazy-chris how do you all feel about the grassroots and a seperate europe mailing list? 17:31:52 rwh h01ger: the goal on olpc is *mostly* aimed at developing countries I would say 17:32:03 crazy-chris grassroots okay for all or any protests 17:32:05 * h01ger thinks its not neccessary yet (a europe list) - later, yes 17:32:20 yokoy h01ger: agree 17:32:20. 17:32:58 h01ger agreed we will use the grassroots lists for now - maybe, probably, later a dedicated list is fine. 17:33:12 l-fy wait 17:33:17 l-fy i have something to say on this point 17:33:41 * crazy-chris reminds: half-time 17:33:42 l-fy i want a europe mail list because it will speed up things a lot 17:34:10 ChristophD how will it speed things up?
17:22:44 b457144n if not let's move to the next point 17:22:52 h01ger yokoy, olpc is political, for sure. But i'm not conviced olpc europe should be political, even despite what l-fy says. (because in germany, brussels is completly irrelevant regarding school education) 17:22:59 crazy-chris what can we see in o-e? 17:23:13 h01ger agreed take 'political' out from the text, and see how will/can be political 17:23:20 sj hiya 17:23:28 l-fy hi sj 17:23:31 crazy-chris hey 17:23:44 l-fy next point pilot project 17:23:49 h01ger sj,. Backlog at ml :-) 17:23:59 b457144n l-fy: you take the words out of my mouth 17:24:16 * h01ger doesnt think we are done yet 17:24:18 l-fy i think that olpc europe should help people that want to do pilot projects in their country and they.
We have no money, and who has time? 17:25:05 h01ger crazy-chris, exactly 17:25:07 crazy-chris we can share information and contacts though 17:26:08 h01ger regarding our vision and the rest of the agenda, i would suggest to send this document to the grassroots lists now and discuss it there and in the next meeting. (hopefully 17:26:09 crazy-chris anything 'pilots'? 17:26:24 l-fy crazy-chris you don't have the money and the time 17:26:29 * crazy-chris agrees 17:26:34 l-fy but maybe i'm willing to help Bulgaria 17:26:36 b457144n i thinks to point is that oplc-europe shouldnt do pilots but help with exchanging experiences etc 17:26:40 l-fy. 17:28:06 h01ger agreed olpc europe doesn't do pilots but helps the grassroots 17:28:09 b457144n. We can build on eachothers promotional material, implementations scenarios, etc.

I would rather (as the document does) focus on documenting what we intend to do 17:18:51 b457144n i agree with l-fy that olpcs goals are intrinsically political 17:19:10 l-fy can we vote on that point 17:19:11 l-fy? 17:19:13 * Gregor_Marco agree with holger 17:19:29 l-fy i mean about political side? 17:19:29 * ryd agree to h01ger 17:19:46 h01ger we wont lobby in brussels. We will lobby in berlin, paris, bucarest, etc. (and maybe in hamburg, lyon, etc too) 17:19:55 crazy-chris yes 17:19:59 l-fy political usually means to get support from olpc europe if local grassroots require on the political side 17:20:07 * b457144n agrees with h01ger 17:20:22 l-fy h01ger for the me is important that we will.
