Revisiting One Laptop Program

I hadn’t visited the One Laptop Per Child program in a while, but the fact that the program adopted Windows as the operating system came up at the Computers and Writing conference I am attending. I thought I should see what else is going on a OLPC.

My visit was fruitful. I just found out that donors can now designate where they would like the laptops to go–no initially part of the program. 100 laptops at $299 would probably be sufficient to outfit the orphan center and school Joseph wants to build. A $299 donation would be a very concrete, tangible donation, although it might be something that we want to emphasize after we get basic needs solidified.
