OLPC + CC Hackathon

Timothy Vollmer, February 14th, 2008

Check out the OLPC book & music drive and XO hackathon going on this weekend. From SJ:

Share the love with One Laptop per Child, the Creative Commons, Textbook Revolution, and the entire world!

We are collecting all the free books, movies, music, and other content that we can in the next five days! Then, on Tuesday (2/19) the Creative Commons will be burning a LiveDVD as part of LiveContent 2.0 with big selection of CC licensed materials that we are gathering—this DVD will be distributed to events like South by Southwest and elsewhere. The bundle of books and educational resources we collect will be used by One Laptop per Child to send all over the world for children, families, and schools! And will compiling and reviewing the best college-level resources they can find for the coming re-launch of their new, community driven site!

On Saturday, there will be a hackathon/jam at Olin college. We hope others will create jams and barcamps and jams, and we will be adding them to the list above as they do!

Digg it up.
