San Francisco State University
835 Market St, 5th Floor (go downtown, NOT main campus!)
San Francisco, CA 94103

In a modern classroom (or possibly 2!) Oct 22-24, most business hours and possibly Mon/Tue early evenings. Nearby pubs will be well-used evenings too.

Cost will be kept to an absolute minimum (possibly free, thanks to the amazing generosity of SFSU) with reliable Wifi included -- lunch/dinner available for purchase downstairs at the large Food Court.

Note the weekend's Oct 19-21 Community Summit itself (structured talks etc, you don't want to miss) typically costs about $40/person to pay for room rental, supplies etc. That price would be an order of magnitude higher if it weren't for the astonishing volunteer efforts of the http://olpsSF.org community.


San Francisco is not cheap, but great hostels are available if you book them early. Please write to the olpc-sf@lists.laptop.org public mailing list for tips, so you can get to know & stay nearby others: http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/olpc-sf

Please also join the olpc-sf public mailing list if you'd like to volunteer making this event an important if not historic contribution to global collaborative learning, thanks! You may also write privately to Adam Holt if you prefer: holt @ laptop.org
