Here's the poster I submitted for the One Laptop Per Child San Francisco Summit I'll be attending October 19-21.
The poster is 18"x24." OLPC-SF will print and laminate the first ten posters submitted. I don't know yet if mine will qualify for that, but regardless, all posters will be put on their website, so we will hopefully get some additional exposure.
At the summit, I'll be doing a speed-geek** talk about how L2L established our first computer education project in Lesotho. This poster is designed to go along with my talk.
** I'd never heard of speed-geek presentations before, but it's apparently a bit like speed-dating. All presenters are scattered at tables around the room. The attendees split into small groups distributed among the presenters' tables. Each presenter gives a 3-minute presentation to one small group, then has two minutes to answer questions. After 5 minutes, the attendees rotate to the next table, and it starts all over again. Each presenter ends up giving their presentation multiple times.
Wish me luck!
