Yes, I'll be in town on the 8th, so the laptop will be there. Right now
we're trying to improve the how-do-I-develop-for-OLPC story, and
hopefully we'll have this figured out by the end of the PyCon sprint.
Then some weekend we could do a sprint -- start out with installation,
do an hour or two of tutorial (make sure everyone gets a Hello World
activity running), then split up and do whatever people think is cool.
I imagine we'd get some people who haven't really used Python, but that
should be okay -- or at least, the goal I'd have for a sprint is really
getting people started more than specific output during the sprint.
