Seeking One Laptop Demo Per Child

How can I find out where OLPC prototypes will be demo'd nearby? I always hear about the Linux user group meetups, the talks at Harvard and MIT, and the conferences about a week after the fact. (I guess that's how they stay so small.) I'm looking for events in NYC, Boston, or elsewhere in that radius. So my specific question is are there any such events coming up in the northeast, and my general question is how can I better search for such events? An offshoot question: any regional mefi'ers currently holding an xo prototype? If so, I'd like to get in touch to ask a couple questions for a research project. Thanks.

The NYC ones (like that one at google a couple weeks ago) tend to get posted to the NextNY list/website.

Depending on what you want to see, you may like to know that you can get OLPC OS Images for emulation that you may be able to run or boot. No use if you're interested in the hardware, but there's the software.

Email me (see profile). If I can't answer your questions, I can probably put you in touch with people who can.

I don't personally have an XO, but if you want to play with one and are in the Boston area (or will be at some point), shoot me an email.
