A strong community of people with the passion to improve the hardware, software, and content of the devices has grown through the OLPC Wiki right here in Rochester.  The Rochester connection to the class is the OLPC Users Group, led by Frederick Grose and Karlie Robinson, both of whom have been instrumental in the development and delivery of the course and the coops.  It was the ties Robinson had to the Open Source community as owner of On-Disk.com that initiated the program’s connections to Red Hat, Fedora (who donated 25 OLPC’s to Jacob’s  lab for Technological Literacy) and Sugar Labs (the OLPC spin-off responsible for the growth and development of the Sugar operating system). Grose and Jacobs began working on OLPC related efforts two years ago and it was Grose who supervised the Co-Ops and was the primary organizer of a week –long trip to Boston to meet others in the OLPC, Sugar and Open Source communities.
