  yum --enablerepo=olpc-info update

   This presentation will address updates from the OLPC project (hardware,
   software, networks, schools, teachers, children, parents, etc), its
   achievements thus far (what works and what does not) and where it is
   headed in the near future (yes, its still alive). We will also look at how
   various communities (such as PenLUG) can participate in the educational,
   technological and social contexts.

  For information on getting to the meeting, please see:

  Traffic on 101 can be pretty bad in the evening, so we encourage you
  to check traffic conditions before driving by dialing 5-1-1 on your
  phone or visiting www.511.org, and if possible to take public transit
  (best bet: bicycle via Caltrain) or carpool to this meeting.
