There have been a number of excellent "9.1 proposals" posted to devel@ and sugar@ recently. Since OLPC seems to have cancelled XOcamp, here's a proposal for an alterna-conference during the same time period.



These were donations made for the original XOcamp; the contributors need to be contacted to see whether they are willing to put the money towards a sugarcamp instead.

  • User:CScott (cscott at has pledged $1000 for sugar developers
  • Michael Stone (michael at has pledged $1000 for speakers
  • Christoph ( christoph at has pledged $100 for anyone
  • User:Ohshima (yoshiki at has pledged $50 for anyone
  • An anonymous donor has pledged $800.
  • Peter Robinson pledged $50.
  • George Mavrothalassitis pledged $50.
  • Gary (gary at garycmartin dot com) has paypaled $100 for sugar developers


These were people willing to host speakers during XOcamp; they need to be contacted regarding their willingness to host for Sugarcamp.

  • Michael Stone (michael at has pledged to house 2 friendly speakers.
  • Bill Bogstad can a twin bed in a basement.
  • Chris Ball has a flat space.
  • Mel Chua (and Chris Carrick) can take 2 guests - air mattress and sofa - and live 15min walking from the airport for those with weird flight times. (mel at laptop)

Adopt a speaker!

These are out-of-town speakers (and links to their proposals) who could present at Sugarcamp.

Please feel free to add anyone I've missed; I just compiled this quickly by scanning emails to devel@ and sugar@ with 'Proposal' in the title. If you're one of the listed developers, please add your location and the approximate cost of airfare, if you can determine it -- or remove yourself if you've made a proposal but aren't actually interested in attending, or can donate your own travel costs. I tried to roughly sort by number of proposals made (talks to be given).
