What do we put on the One Laptop Per Child? Sugar

OLPC size comparison The Electric Chameleon is thinking about OLPC chat programs.

There’s some great OLPC coverage from linux.conf.au, including photos.

If you’re interested in helping out the OLPC project, check out the OLPC Developers Program and some more details on Sugar.

Meddlesome posted some great links, including B1 pictures, and this fantastic size comparison (see left). Unfortunately, Google has yet to add a Thai to English translator, so I’ve missed most of the text in this post. OLPC’s Thailand initiative also has it’s own page. Some more Thai language coverage here, or add something to the OLPC Idea Pool.

It’s an education project, not a laptop project.

MIT’s One Laptop Per Child projectrevolutionize how we educate the world’s children

Meddlesome also linked to the BlackBack web theory and AMD’s 50×15 project. AMD’s 50×15 initiative is a bold and far-reaching effort to develop new technology and solutions that will help enable affordable Internet access and computing capability for 50 percent of the world’s population by the year 2015. With the global population estimated to reach 7.2 billion people in 2015, there is tremendous potential for 50×15 to bring billions of people into the digital age.
