 Free Culture @ NYU,

 A number of us have purchased OLPCs

 in the give one get one program

 and are interested in building on it.

 So we've booked a room at ITP

 and are going to bring our laptops and have fun making new
 content for the little green machines. We're also going to talk
 about making the laptop more manageable as a machine to use
 everyday for adults -- you'll be able to learn how to hack your
 OLPC and install XFCE (a lightweight GUI), Ubuntu, and take
 advantage of its unique hardware configurations.

 This session will also be for those people who are interested in
 learning more about the OLPC in general, and what they can expect
 if they're expecting a special delivery. Come with a jump drive,
 and of course if you have one -- your OLPC.

 Here's the info for those of you who can't be bothered to read non bolded
