Tech the Halls: DJ showdown to support OLPC work with disabled children

No, this isn’t the brainchild of DJ XO… he’s not even eligible to compete.

This is a virtual DJ battle hosted by turntable.fm as a benefit event for OLPC, with donations accepted through crowdrise.

The contenders will be tech media figures (and amateur DJs) still to be named — though a few have already started tweeting about it!  The matchups will be posted next week and they will face off on December 16, from 1-5pm EST.  Money raised through the event will be donated to OLPC in the name of the winner, and will support getting XOs to disabled children in the US.


Uruguay’s Plan Ceibal has already made great strides in XO accessibility for the disabled, and we are beginning to build on their work with children in the US; this funddrive will provide laptops for the first group of children.

So mark your calendars, come enjoy the virtual turntables and support your favorite DJ on December 16! Thanks to the Horn Group and ttfm for making this happen.
