The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

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.
