I'm waiting for the two XO Laptops that I ordered to arrive. The first known to the blogosphere came to Minnesota, but I was far from a first day donor -- more like tenth. I'm excited to play with them. I'm equally excited to see what others will do with theirs. And to hook up with them. With the internet, I can do that remotely but there's also good stuff that comes out of old-fashioned face to face meets. I keep seeing stuff about what seems like a big group in DC that meets face to face.
I've been poking around on the web for Minnesota XOs. I'm not seeing much, but maybe they're just not writing about it. So I decided to write this up just in case others were doing the same.
These are the three clear MN-related XO links that I've found:
http://s4xton.com/1632/my-first-experience-with-an-xo-laptop/ : I'm not even sure he's going to have one, but he's in Minneapolis.
http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2007/12/12/olpc-follow-up.html : He's got the XO fame going right now and resides down Mankato way.
http://www.analoghero.com/criteria : These folks are giving an XO away to a kid. It's not clear whether they'll also be XO people themselves but they're in St. Paul.
If you're getting an XO and interested in keeping up with other Minnesotans, feel free to comment here and if there's sufficient interest we can get together.
