One laptop per child

NewYork Times: “When computer industry executives heard about a plan to build a $100 laptop for the developing world’s children, they generally ridiculed the idea. How could you build such a computer, they asked, when screens alone cost about $100?”

I have been following this for a while now. I’m a supporter of it. You could say, a laptop can not be food or road or school or clinic, but I dare to say to could be all of those things and more if used properly.

Information is king, folks. If it can be accessed by all, it will change lives. Devices like this is a route to that. Lack of information and knowledge is killing millions every minute. And this will help change that to a certain degree at its infancy, and to a greater degree later.
