    I''m interested. I teach computer graphics with 22 Dell cpu''s in an ART ROOM, two scanners, three microphones and an lcd projector for demonstrations. My daughter has a new baby in England--they can''t wait to get to America. This nearly 1 year old is going to be a US Senator or some such. She wants to do what Mommy & Daddy are doing all the time. We just said "she needs a computer of her own."

    We are keeping a close eye on this project, not least because a bunch of these machines in the hands of school kids in developing countries (or anywhere) will require teachers who have been through our teacher training project which provides skills and content just right for enhancing learning. It''s an astonishingly close match, I believe. Please provide us with information on how to take this forward. Bismilla Kader

    Really? What every kid needs is a laptop with 100 books on it? Many of the kids in underdeveloped countries would certainly appreciate this and would very likely come up with a million uses that I could not even imagine for the thing. But how do we really know this is what they need? Maybe they need a good pair of runners, or a ball, or a hug everyday? I''m not convinced that computers are the answer to the world''s children. I always remember the cardboard box the toy came in was the best toy.

    Regarding both the OLPC and this writeup--truly brilliant and awesome.
