A worthy cause.

I don't know if anybody on here knows of this group, but I think their work is AWESOME.

PLEASE listen to this 1 hour talk by Nicholas Negroponte and see the value of this program. It may not be an amazing PC for those 10+, but for a young kid these PCs are excellent. It's $200 to donate a PC, or $400 for the get one/donate one. If you're doing any kind of Charity work, I highly suggest donating to this group, and if you're looking for a computer for a younger person, consider one of these for the same price as a small laptop.

Please listen here: http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/rn/podca...w_20090124.mp3

Go here for more info: One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a low-cost, connected laptop for the world's children's education

And please, pass on the information to anyone that would be interested.
