The OLPC Game Jam is a game design and programming event designed to encourage (simultaneously) experimentation and innovation in the game industry and kick off development of open-source games for the OLPC platform (the XO). A group of game developers will get together over a three-day period to make as many innovative games as possible for the laptop, which is being distributed to children in developing countries around the world.

I love codefests. We should have more of them around here. Get a whole bunch of people together who are interested in having some of the same kinds of tools; code it up; release it to the public. I think I want to setup a EDU Jam for MN Private Colleges.
Would you come?
What would you want to make?
