Here's my part to promote the 2008 "Give One Get One" (aka G1G1) program (aka G1G1 2008) of the One Laptop per Child (aka OLPC) project.

The program begins 11/17/2008; orders are being handled through http://www.amazon.com/xo.

The following is lifted from the OLPC wiki:

Join our community mailing list, grassroots@lists.laptop.org, to discuss how to get the word out about the new campaign.


Blog it, add a comment about it to every article about OLPC and the XO.

* Social site updates -- Facebook, Twitter[1], MySpace : there are OLPC accounts on many of these sites which need maintenance and regular updating. For instance some 2007-era badges and promotions need to be updated to link to the Amazon site.

* Viral marketing. Put http://www.amazon.com/xo in your e-mail signature. Mention G1G1 in blog posts. Comment on misinformed or incomplete articles online, and include the link and the date, Nov. 17.
