Another important reason ..
When planning for olpcbasecamp2013 I was aware that many conferences were happening in the month of November. In my last posting I found out that the World Innovation Forum well be held from Nov 12-14, 2013 in Kuala Lumpur. Today I was alerted to the coming ITU summit on Nov 18 in BangKok, Thailand.
To me this is good news for potential participants coming to basecamp from overseas. With good planning they will be able to attend a few premier events during this period in November. It is also easier perhaps for funding if they are attending other major conferences as well :-) Yes we hope we can be lucky with more overseas participants.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
Anyway .. plan and see you soon
