One Laptop Per Child
|Stu Leigh of Real World Productions sent me a link the this video, in which Hakon Wium Lie, the CTO of Opera Software, demonstrates the hardware for the new OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) initiaitve. It's pretty impressive. Opera, if you didn't know, is providing the web browser for the OLPC effort.|
It's hard not to be enthusiastic about the OLPC project, originally conceived by MIT's Nicholas Negroponte. But my thinking was focused a bit by a posting I stumbled into that offers some criticisms of the project from a basically supportive stance.
