Mostly separate but...it is my fine-art conservation documentation and desktop publishing mini workshop

we could have people bring their photos and we scan and make montages, books and exhibits. I've wanted to collect the long school and high society scroll photos that inevitably wound up rolled into a 4" to 5" tube which dried that way and would be a great demonstration on how to determine the pH, flatten and matte them. 


The objective here is to have participants learn to install linux systems and apps 

1) locally from thumbdrives, onto a laptop (which is what I did @ scale), 

2) on hardware that supports Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). 

i can bring 2 1u servers or maybe i would bring smaller workstations that can be used as servers. we need one server for taking it apart to experience what's inside the box and the other server to run a kvm virt-manager application that could handle 10 or more installations, all happening and shareable at the same time. The 1u's are a bit noisy but could be stuck on a cart near power or maybe i'll just bring smaller machines.

the server needs to be in the room connected via ethernet cables. wifi can maybe work with laptops and router connected to the server. a 2 shelf library cart would work.


3. install online to AWS,


The DTLA Mini Maker Faire is a great opportunity. I like to know more about the potential workshop spaces. I have 10+ olpc's I can bring. That system uses http://sugarizer.org

Thanks!
