Can a laptop change the world?

,----[ Quote ]
| Rwanda has now ordered more than 100,000 XO laptops and plans 
| to roll them out to as many schools as possible, with part of 
| the funding coming from the sale of mobile phone licences. 
| Finally, OLPC has found an African country which appears to be 
| committed to going beyond a pilot and making the laptops an 
| integral part of its education system


OLPC gets microwaved, molded into stunning piece of art

,----[ Quote ]
| Kenny Irwin, known for his post-microwave creations, decided 
| to zap one of the low-cost PCs and then mold it into the 
| OLPCSlug while things were still gooey, all in the name of 
| good publicity and charity. You see, the buyer of this lovely 
| piece will see 80 percent of the proceeds head straight to 
| OLPC...

A new OLPC deployment in Nigeria

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month, I found myself embarking on a last-minute
| journey to a One Laptop per Child workshop in Port Harcourt,
| Nigeria. They are preparing for a 6000 XO laptop deployment in
| that region of the country. I attended to support the 5-day
| event, which was coordinated by Michael Tempel and Claudia
| Urrea.
