OLPC Should Look Past Hardware to LISP and FPGA

,----[ Quote ]
| The Python programming language community 
| figured out how to put up-to-date Python 
| programs and Python interpreters on old 
| (like first generation) iPods. This has the 
| same advantage as the LISP on your junk-
| yard Atari. It is taking stuff that the 
| rich people think is trash and using it in 
| new and productive ways. The under 
| developed nations get old computers anyway, 
| but they are putting them in toxic waste 
| dumps. Most western teens do not want an 
| iPod from 2001, and this Python interpreter 
| allows them to be reused in a productive 
| way.

| complete source code for a new game, and 
| then teaches the programming concepts from 
| the example.
