OLPC@Duke contributor, Alex Keybl, organized The OLPC Grassroots Web Conference "GrassCon" to increase communication between grassroots projects, as well as increase the general visibility of OLPC projects around the world. The projects that presented ranged from software/hardware development to pilot programs and public awareness campaigns. The conference was held on July 19th but a conflict barred me from participating live. As a result I submitted a 5 minute presentation to report our efforts. Overall feedback was positive but few pilot coordinators participated so there was little opportunity to get specific feedback on ways to integrate independent activities into their pilot programs. In any case, the video serves as a quick presentation of our mission.
