Motorola Lapdock Donation
by Mike DePaulo
I have a new spare Motorola Atrix Lapdock that I could donate. You can
hook it up to a raspberry pi with a few adapters/cables:
"The lapdock incorporates a razor-sharp 11" HDMI display, an
almost-adequate keyboard-with-trackpad, twin speakers, and a
high-capacity battery -- all in a thin two-pound package."
(Note: "razor-sharp" == 1366x768.)
Are any regions interested in receiving it?

F26 Release Party - Sirko
by Brian Exelbierd
Sirko (and everyone),
I've been reading your multi-part series on how you're doing the F26
release party in Phnom Penh.
I think this is a fantastic idea. I like that you are working directly
with lots of future members of the IT working groups in Cambodia and
likely future contributors. I really appreciate how using Fedora as a
base has let you talk about all kinds of technology and firmly introduce
it. Students are a hard audience, and it seems like you've found a
great low-resource high energy way to engage them. This is awesome.
Keep your posts coming.
I think these kind of release parties create an opportunity for existing
contributors and ambassadors to really bond with potential community
members. Many of our activities don't seem to have obvious followup. I
would be surprised if there isn't clear followup by Sirko here as he
will obviously have invested a lot of time and made friends (by showing
off freedom, features and first). What other ideas could we do like
this in your region?
