Over 20 OLPC and Sugar collaborators are in Uruguay this week, visiting schools, meeting with the Uruguayan communities (ceibalJAM, RAP Ceibal, and the eduJAM event team), and preparing for the eduJAM! summit for Sugar developers and educators across Latin America.
The attendees are using a separate OLPC Uruguay 2011 blog for the week to track their various travels and projects in Uruguay. If you can’t be there yourself, you can follow along (and share your own questions for the group) here.
Sunday at noon there is an XO BRNch in the BRONX to discuss OLPC NYC and updates from Africa. All are welcome, but rsvp to Mago and Holt so they can be ready with appropriate quantities of delicious food. Lidet Tilahun will be joining by phone to share news from OLPC in Ethiopia.

To whet your appetite, Saturday afternoon Montevideo and CeibalJAM are hosting a miniJam for artists, from 14:00 to 20:00. Christoph Derndorfer will be reporting live.
And Saturday is the first Drumbeat Boston event, celebrating projects supporting the Open Web, including OLPC.
